Creaks and Squeaks

The building where Sound:Site is to be held is wonderfully old and characterful. It has many hidden corners and architectural features, including a very old passage around the back of the Studio Theatre upstairs with notably creaky floorboards.

I recorded the sound of these floorboards on Wednesday and uploaded it to the UK Sound Map. Walking on the floorboards produces an amazing sound because this part of the building is very old, and so I spent a good 15 minutes wandering about on them in my bare feet, appreciating the sonic qualities of the old wood. A longer recording is being sent to Jonathon Coleclough, who may use it in his performance at Site:Sound.
