I have recorded my latest album during a 5887km cycle adventure across Europe. Capturing the sounds of the places i visit. Starting in Edam, then to Gruyere over the Alps to Gorgonzola, Towards the Pyrenees and then up to finish in Camembert.

A fall down the side of a mountain. 2390k Gorgonzola 25th September 2013

2390 kilometres, we have cycled & recorded all the way to Gorgonzola in Italy. Yeeehaaaa!

You should always open a small door into the mountain.

It may take you on an unexpected journey into an acoustic tunnel that is great for recording guitar...

....and you might just find something amazing at the end.

Devils bridges

Water falls, shear drops, mountains, rivers and fear...

...later that day:

The Gotthard Pass (Got hard) ha ha

It was tough, after three days of mountain climbs, the weight of the equipment was starting to make me ill. ha ha. Full on fatigue, muscles full of lead and Big Bad Man Flu. sniff.

I wouldn't recommend physical endurance + altitude as a cure for blocked sinuses

After 8 hours of cycle climbing......15 miles of down hill cobble stones will sort you out!

Songs, bridges, tunnels, mountains, waterfalls and guitar....
Don't write a day off, Just because you are ill. haha

we met some new cycle buddies during the climb.

We made it, thanks Kim mate. (understatement)

A river/waterfall in the middle of nowhere

Fresh air, crystal water, the song ideas just flow!

A really great place to set up my Contour cameras.....underwater!
......and then filming video and audio through the water....ha ha

Yep, I am definitely feeling a bit better.

We captured loads of audio samples, new songs and lots of creative experimental ideas.

(and it was really good fun playing around in the river like a couple of kids. ha ha)

...and then the space ship came and beamed me up. haha

(sunlight shining under a motorway tunnel)

Buon Giorno Italia!

We have cycled to Italy!

Big Tunnels through mountains (this one was 3 kilometres! pedal pedal pedal!)

...and arches that hug the waters edge

They take you to places like this:

Cycling sunset over lake Como

Well, if you are going to work on a song, it may as well be sitting on a harbour wall whilst watching the sunset over a misty lake Como. ha ha

Gordon Bennett! Gorgonzola!

2390 kilometres, songs/album, half way

I truly am overwhelmed with the response I have received all the way across Europe and I am so chuffed with the music I have written and created so far....

What will be next?
