The Listened To Sound by John Wiggins

   (0 reviews)

The title refers to that certain timbral or spatial or acoustic property that makes you notice a sound. I record all the sounds I use, both in my studio and in the field and all in M/S Stereo. I listen for that bit of new information in the sound, that uniqueness, that thing that made me turn my head and push record. That’s the sound I use. Sound is an energy field that I’ve been immersed in and worked in my whole life. There are always surprises and ways to treat the ear to new experiences and I try to find them in the real sounds of my world.
