Question: Do you like the sound of Squeaky Gates?

I would hate to have one outside my house, but on a walk, I often open and close gates several times to really hear the nuances of the sounds, my grandchildren look at me quizzically – just Granny being Granny!

This one is near Compton Abbas

and this one at Kingston Lacy

I have often thought, if I knew how to do it, I would create some kind of music out of the sounds, so I was delighted to discover that Alastair Duncan of Still Walks has done just that. Here is a link to his Soundscapes.

Alastair has been exhibiting his interactive weaving and is currently working on an exciting new project: Art and Audio Interactivity.

Very exciting! I hope to get to see his work as part of an exhibition in London in October at the Espacio Gallery

  4. I’ve got lots of squeaky doors and creaky floorboards in my house if somebody could do something with those πŸ˜‰

  5. A couple of great short videos Sandra. I am sure there are a couple of haikus waiting to go with them.

  6. You do have some intriguing quirks πŸ˜€ I’m not a lover of squeaky anything really – but I guess that is just because I haven’t learned to listen with appreciation as you obviously do. And your man has it right in the end – there is a form of music to be found in everything when we know how to share it….. Though I stopped at the gate soundtrack and wasn’t prepared to go any further – after all its 7 am and I’m still on first coffee ………

  7. Lovely videos, Sandra – thank you! I like the sound of quiet foot steps and song birds, not that creaking gates aren’t also nice. πŸ˜‰

  8. Mmm, interesting thoughts but noisy gates don’t do it for me I’m afraid. Now a nice steam train….

  10. The white gate, in particular, has the most beautiful sound. Enjoyed listening to the Autumn StillWalks. If you go to the exhibition, keep us posted.
