Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
Andy must get field recording again; it is important for him.
Other than speaking about myself in the second and third person, I, Andy B*, have a fondness for Field Recording – I have had a few successes with it, being reviewed positively in The Wire.
To motivate me, I set all sorts of schemes – this is one of them…
iIt is a website called A Sound Map Of Harrogate. I collect the audio heritage fo the town and try and present it to anyone who has an interest, which at present is a series of Bots from China.
The thing that is holding me back from it is that I struggle to get outside; not due to work commitments (although that plays a big part) but due to being prone to loafing. I enjoy a loaf and this getting outdoors lark is a bit counter intuitive to it.
S’pose I could make a sound map of my flat?
