My name is Alexander.
My main hobby is collecting sounds. This means quite a few of things actually:
- I may be stuck at my “studio” fiddling with my sound collection, uploading samples thereof to the web in non-web quality, or making a new set of stereo microphones, or
- I may hang out “on location” meeting some weird people – whom I record or who make notable noises which I record, or
- I may ride my MTB to get to a really difficult location to make a unique recording.
See, this simple sounding pastime is quite capable of keeping anybody broadly busy. Certain related (or absolutely unrelated) activities are a subject of this blog too.
Also note, as I happen to write for the local folks, I may occasionally choose to use local language(s). This is for two reasons: better comprehension by the target audience and leaving the world audience free from uncomprehensible stuff.
And by the way, you’ve probably heard that a good writer is the one who reads a lot. I also tend to think that a good audio publisher should be listening to a lot of stuff too. Partially in an attempt to become a better sound-person I strive to listen to fine music.
