Welcome and Introductions

Hello and welcome.

My name is Brandon Jay. I have lived in Colorado, home of the Mile High City, for most of my life. I am 6 feet 9 inches tall, as close to a 7-foot man as you can get. This is how I hear my world at 5287 Feet.

This blog will feature field recordings and sound compositions by myself and whatever I happen to come across online. Here are a few introductory links to get you started and to have an idea of what I’m all about.


Quiet American

Aaron Ximm of San Francisco, sound artist and field recordist. His site is home to a weekly series of One Minute Vacations


A weekly broadcast in the UK. “framework is a show consecrated to field recording, and it’s use in composition. Field recording, phonography, the art of sound-hunting; Open your ears and listen!”

A great directory of field recordists and sound artists from around the world, and samples of their work.
