Infrastructure Recordings

About Us

Infrastructure Recordings is a small enterprise founded by Chris Richmond, whose life-long interests in sound and music have developed into an up and coming brand of high-quality audio recordings.

 

 

Chris’ links with the public transport industry means he has a great deal of experience with buses, refining an ear for detail, which, combined with his own curiosity has enabled him to produce a number of high-quality sound libraries defining each vehicle’s unique sonic characteristics.

 

A railway enthusiast at heart, Chris is also passionate about railway recordings- particularly the sounds of fast-disappearing heritage vehicles, attempting to preserve those characteristic soundtracks we all take for granted on our journeys, which will soon all be consigned to the history books.

  • World Sounds Church Bells of Norfolk Play Track 244 sounds included, 464 mins total $60 $40

    A distinct sound of the traditional English countryside, the ringing of church bells is an art that has been practiced for centuries, be it to summon the people to their prayers, celebrate a wedding, or announce a death.

    “Church Bells of Norfolk” is a collection of sound recordings taken at a variety of different churches throughout the County of Norfolk, England- an area famous for it's large number of surviving medieval churches.

    The bells of each church vary in size, weight and tone and no two towers are the same, meaning that the resulting sound varies from location to location.
    Some churches are nestled amongst the bustling town centres- their chimes echoing off nearby buildings whilst competing with the raucous noise of passing traffic whilst others stand in glorious isolation in the countryside.

    Aside from the exterior recordings, this collection also features recordings taken from inside the belfry as well as below in the ringing chamber, capturing the clatter of the rope pulleys and the calls of the tower captain as they instruct the ringers.

    Also included are a selection of clock chimes as well as a set of sounds from the automated 12-bell carillon of St. Martin's, Glandford, which plays one of a selection of hymn tunes every third hour.

  • Anybody familiar with travelling on the London Underground will be aware of the distinct soundscapes beneath the streets of London; from the clatter of the ticket hall barriers to the eerie rumbles from the tunnels, waiting in anticipation for the next train to come rushing past before stopping with the squeal of the brakes.

    Each type of train on the network has its own distinct characteristics such as the moaning of the electric traction motors or the peculiar sound of the 1996 Stock used on the Jubilee Line.

    All of these sounds have been beautifully captured in 24-bit 48KHz quality- recorded both with XY stereo microphones and binaurally- creating a highly realistic experience for headphone users.

    Note to users:
    As many of you will know, like many urban transit systems, the London Underground is littered with pre-recorded public announcements.
    These recordings have been extensively edited to the highest quality to ensure that these pre-recorded announcements have been removed where possible.
