Exciting news! James Hamilton, a local musician, is creating a sound installation this summer, which will feature The Chevin amongst other local venues. It will document recordings of wildlife native to Otley using custom built binaural field recorders. When played back on headphones, the recordings give the illusion of a visual 3D space. I can vouch for this – I’ve tried it!

He needs your suggestions and stories! If you have ideas about what he should highlight, or know of a great place to capture the sounds of wildlife on The Chevin, please let him know. Just go to his website and submit your suggestions on the form. And where you have ideas or not, you can use this link to sign up to his mailing list:
