Delighted to see Mark O'Rowe's The Delinquent Season has been released. I'd a great time working on it as my first credited as dialogue editor gig. Working on it, I learned the amazing strengths of Izotope RX spectral repair for cleaning up incidental noises, which was really important for an intimate, dialogue driven drama film.

The Vinyl Factory have released a short film on contemporary musicians and artists using field recording in their work. It raises some really interesting questions about the act of field recording in itself. In a strictly technical mode, the aim would be to record sound as cleanly as possible in the highest fidelity. But if field recording in an artistic sense, it can be argued that it's the moment and place of the recordist in that moment that matters more than the objective quality of the recording.
