Ian Rawes 是伦敦的一位录音师。他希望用自己录制的声音来描绘一幅伦敦的声音地图。他为何钟情于录音工作？ 它又从录音过程中得到什么样的乐趣？欢迎收听今天的节目。
Well I go home in the evening and I spend a long time listening to what I have recorded. And I must say that I'm not usually happy with most of what I have recorded. You have to decide what to get rid of. And it is like panning for gold, you have to look through a lot of gravel to find some small pieces of gold.
I'll tell you one good thing is that recording the sounds of an event or a place is a very good way to aid your memory later on. When you hear a good recording of a place, it recreates the sense of being there very vividly. I think it does it better than a photograph, because it immerses you in the original situation.
