Let’s Top Up Floor and Stair Creaks for the Rest of June. Oh, & Potential Creaky Meetup, Anyone?

So, as you’ll have noticed, no new theme this month.  I was away on holiday for the start of the month and so, sitting down to prep the new theme launch last night, I thought better of it in the end and decided that the remainder of the month would be better spent having another bash at an older theme that hasn’t as yet had much love:  Floor & Stair Creaks.

I’m going to merge these two sets into one folder in Sugarsync so, even if you are only able to provide, say, floor creaks, you’ll still get access to any contributed stair creaks too.  This is simply because the two types of creaks are so interlinked that it’s pointless treating them as separate collections.

Have a think if there’s any older buildings you can access to get some good creaks but don’t discount your own homes; creaks from all periods of housing are useful and very welcome.

I’m going to collect some sounds from my house but I’ve also managed to organise an opportunity to get into an 18th Century building in Central London in a couple of weeks time to get some good floor and staircase sounds.  In this way, we can kill two birds with one stone and have our first club meet up in quite a long while too.  We may not risk getting carbon monoxide poisoning this time as well, which is a bonus.

We’ve only got half an hour in there but it’s only a small building anyway so we should be ok for time.  The bad news is that, because it’s a small building, it’s impractical to have loads of us traipsing around in there so I’ll have to limit it to two members coming along with me.  However, if I try and schedule the record towards the end of the afternoon then, if you’re in town, we could maybe join you for a drink somewhere nearby after we’re done creaking.  Remember, as long as you contribute to the club’s creaks collection then you’ll get a copy of our results anyway.

Best bet is, if you’re likely to be in the vicinity and fancy meeting up in a couple of weeks, drop me a line at thescclub@btinternet.com, I’ll give you more info and we’ll take it from there!

Cheers,

Michael
