Behind the Noise
Photo Albums

I always try recording my own sounds when it is possible, and sometimes even when it is impossible! Many pictures taken during my past sampling sessions, have never been released. This page gives you access to a wider set of photos than what is available on my blog. Discover where the sounds you're now familiar with, have been recorded. Enjoy!

Kyoto Area, Japan — Spring 2017

A sampling session around Kyoto, recording traditional sounds from Japan. I was mainly interested in recording atmosphere around shrines and temples.

Not many pictures were taken, as I often attended religious ceremonies and wanted to keep as respectful as possible.

The Netherlands — Winter 2017

A very short sampling session in The Netherlands, to sample an antique windmill. We are in Cabauw in the province of Utrecht, which lies two meters below sea level. To keep the land dry, water is carried away via an impressive number of small canals and pumped to increasing heights, by windmills. These mills harvest the force of the wind to drive water wheels.

Poland — Spring 2016

A 4-day sampling session in Poland, sampling 'Natural Elements' such as the Earth, Air, Water and Fire. I would like to thank Marta — a Polish fan of this site — for organising my staying. She opted for shelters in the middle of nowhere, without electricity nor running water, and that was just perfect!

Lapland — Winter 2015

Chasing ice cold noises above the Artic Circle, during the polar night! With the help of a local women, Tinja, and her husband Alex, I experienced Lapland's real life for a week, living without running water nor electricity, only by candle light, and the warmth of a log fire. Sled dogs were our means of transport in the great all-white wilderness.

Sahara — Spring 2015

Sand ruined some of my equipment, but it was worth it! I've been hiking through fantastic mineral landscapes and slept under the stars. Desert is dead silent at night - something I didn't expect - but when wind blows, every single object starts to sing wonderfully!

Ireland — Fall 2015

When I arrived, the whale watching activity had stopped for a while because of the very bad weather conditions. When weather cleared up a bit, the swell was still too high to spot the whales visually and to navigate comfortably. What an experience! The initial theme for this session was 'Singing Whales', and the fallback plan was 'Sea, Wind & Rain'

France — Summer 2014

This sampling session took place in France, about 8 hours drive from home. The family lived in a working sheepfold for a week, and the theme for this sampling session came naturally: 'Sheep on the Cheap' (this sampling session didn't cost a penny, since this was part of our planned family holidays).

Slovenia — Spring 2014

Slovenia was my first sampling session trip abroad, entirely dedicated to the recording of original sounds for myNoise. This happened in Spring 2014, when myNoise just turned one! The theme of this trip was 'Fresh Water'.
