After six years in London, it was time to move on / Too big, to busy, too noisy, the capital of the UK was losing its appeal / I needed somewhere new, smaller, and friendlier / So I moved to Bristol / It is noisy and busy too, but not like London / I don’t associate my new home with air traffic, honking cars, squeaky underground, and impenetrable languages / It is a human place, filled with people living and using the city as their space, but not to the detriment of nature and wildlife / There are many sounds I did not record / As I cycled and walked the city in the making of this album, many more sounds grabbed my ears / There are building works whichever way you look in the centre, children playgrounds in every park, the chatter of crowds by the harbour on a sunny day, the inflating of hot air ballons, hen parties wandering drunk and happy late at night, etc. / But those sounds are not my Bristol, not the ones that have engraved themselves in my mind after nine months in a new home //

July 21, 2017 / 11:57 / 51.429249, -2.550404 / A Moment Of Relaxation / The window open / The day warm, but overcast / I lay in the sofa, eyes closed, listening to the steady rhythm of traffic nearby, to the wind rustling the leaves, and the song of the plastic cover of the outside table / In that moment, there is not a thought in my brain, not a worry in my life //

About the Artist:

Originally from Northern France, Allysse Riordan, relocated to the UK in the early 2010s / As a field recordist, she records what she hears, like an archivist keeping track of the world in a date, time, and place / She also records the unheard with the help of specialised microphones to bring objects to life and add a different layer to their physical presence in our lives / Her aim is to make people aware of the variety and subtlety of sounds around them //
