About Ambient XV: Garden of Bees

‘Bee’ by Andy Murkin

All the recordings for this project were made in my garden between the 27th of May and the 8th of June, 2021, inspired by the purchase of a bumble bee nest and hive.

The recordings were mostly made on a Marantz PMD660 with electret microphones and preamp built by Ian Brady. One section of the main track, Garden of Bees, incorporated a Zoom iQ6 microphone recording into a 1st Gen iPhone SE; and one track, Close-up, comprises recordings made on the Marantz PMD660 with my self-built parabolic reflector microphone and preamp.

Released: 2021
