Descending from the top of the hill on my walk this week meant re-entering the mist. In fact the mist was descending with me and thinning as I walked. On arrival at the gate below I took the opportunity of recording my self walking through it.
Some would hate this metallic sound but I find the various sounds that metal makes wonderful. Wooden gates are perhaps more often attractive than metal ones, and they too have attractive sequences of notes as you pass through them. However, it was metal gates that prompted me to compose a short sequence featuring a number of different metal gates I have recorded. The sound of this particular gate can be heard towards the end of the first clip below – then there is my gate composition!
