I just got back from a recording trip to Spain. It was great to be home (though that's a confusing word these days...)- Spain has so much to offer in terms of sound. From blaring, emotion-brewing traditional trumpets, to street sellers, to the hubbub of it's bars and cafes- which I think sound like nowhere else in the world. There is something about a particularly "Spanish" atmosphere that draws you in and makes you want to sit with friends for hours and drink wine. 

I didn't have time to do that myself, but I did get to record lots of other people doing it- almost as good! I also hit up some of the big sounds you'd expect from a Spanish trip; bull fights, southern music, and even a bit of controversial Gibraltar. (She was interesting to say the least!)

Here's a few photos from my trip. With sound to follow once I've unpacked my bags...


Las Ventas, Madrid

Strait of Gibraltar

Hope it's been a good week for everyone. This morning I'm listening to crisp, newly brown, Irish leaves breezing over my garden. The quiet of rural Ireland is such a contrast to hectic Madrid. I love them both.
