Fresh update on "bells" discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York - Recording Feed

"Are we like oversold on some of those technical indicators? A lot of them have been shown we aren't as yet, and meanwhile, Citigroup is saying, maybe you go bottom fishing, buying the dip, but do it elsewhere. Do it in Europe, doing the emerging markets rather than perhaps evaluations here in the U.S.. But you know, Caroline the phrase that I absolutely adore that romaine actually brought up earlier is sellers exhaustion. How much of this is buying the dip with conviction as opposed to just saying throwing your hands up in the air and saying, you know what? I don't care anymore. I just, I can't sell anymore. All right, well, we're seeing a lot of buying activity here on the day, and we get the closing bells and setting up for back to back games on the major indices, only the second time that we've seen that this month, at least for the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100. As far as the NASDAQ composite, that's higher by about 2.6% here on the day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average going to finish higher by more than 500 points or 1.6%. The S&P 500 higher by about 2% here on the day to close out the day and a lot of that, of course, is because of those discretionary names here. All 60 names in that S&P 500 consumer discretionary index higher on the day that as a group of 5% and that cyclical trade still getting a little bit of an embrace here. You look at the Russell 2000, going to finish the day higher by about 2.2%. And we never really talk about it. I just point out here Carol that the S&P of 400 mid cap index also hire by about 2.3%. Yeah, it does, again, going back to it just feels like, you know, investors rare are willing to really enter into the market on all different levels today. Just the S&P 500 will get into some of the specific sectors, but 451 names in the index hired at a 53 lower, so we definitely saw investors willing to place bets in a lot of places today. Place bets in a lot of places, but take a look at this on a sector action because it is fascinating what you're seeing. We were just talking about Nvidia a few moments ago on Bloomberg television and take a look at what is the best performing sector. If those auto components index, the semiconductors really getting their message and video, of course, the heavyweight driving perhaps some of the gains that you're seeing in the stock market. And you can see this is a fairly broad rally retailers of course coming in

Arizona's Gubernatorial Candidate Karrin Taylor-Robson on Inflation

"About inflation as well. Huge issue here in Arizona, rents are going up. You said 40% year over year. Year over year in the class C apartments, which are the lowest priced apartment rents. That's always the bell weather. And when those prices start coming up, people are getting priced out of any type of housing. And on the single-family homes, we have about two weeks supply in the Phoenix market. So it is a seller's market right now. And that's why prices are going up the way they are. And, you know, I am a free market capitalist. This is about supply and demand. We have more people moving to Arizona and we can't deliver fast enough to the market because it's not just the rising prices or part of the reason that we're having the rising prices is we can't get the supplies. You can't get Windows. You can't get toilets. You can't, you know, our home builders could sell more houses, but they can't build them. Not only can they not get supplies, but they don't have the workers to build the houses. So it's quite a conundrum. And it's going to take a while to work itself out. And then you add on top of that, inflation. And energy prices, which is leading to the inability to have a functioning supply chain. It's a mess. And I lay the blame right at the feet of Joe Biden in this administration. And Phoenix, you could say with groceries and gas, rent, I mean, it's 40 to 45% more expensive this year than last year.

Newest Polling Data Raises Alarm Bells for the Biden Regime

"You're staring down the barrel of right now. Biden only gets 82 percent of his 2020 vote. 82% of his 2020 vote. And that's only 84% among Democrats. So he's only doing slightly better with partisan Democrats than he is over with his overall base, which is a distressing distressing signal. So if we're going to break this down one level more, okay? The base is upset with their president. 25% of Biden 2020 voters disapprove of his job and get this. Biden's disapproval is 27% of self proclaimed liberals. This is the disapproval rating. 19% among Democrats, which is a slightly more partisan hardened partisan group. 25% among African Americans. So that means basically he's got 75 of the African 75% of the African American vote, which is a huge slip. Is disapproval rating is 40% among urban voters. And this is where it gets really, really juicy. 57% among women, I mean, that's like, that's earth shattering. If you're a Democrat, political operative, you're looking at that number 57% among women disapproval rating. And you are having a panic attack. You are ringing that Democrats tend to win the female vote. I have to say, it's partly because women tend to be more relationally based, more emotional in their decision making. I'm not trying to be negative or I'm not being critical of women out there, but this is the way God just made us and we celebrate the sexes and the strengths and the differences. Democrats tend to appeal to emotions, purely emotions, and they tend to win that. So when you see a number that says 57% of women do not support or disapprove of Joe Biden's job ratings, that is a fire alarm folks.

Mike Rowe Has a New Show: 'The Story Behind the Story'

"Mike Rowe, welcome. Eric, what a pleasure to be here with you and you're literally dozens of viewers. I can't wait. Uh, yes. And isn't it sad that you have to come on a show this low rated to pump up your show that the barely exists? Now listen, pal, I've had it with you. I'd fire him. Is it really going to be like this for 25 minutes? No, no, he couldn't be. He couldn't be. We would die. Here's the issue. Here's the issue. I like you so much. My love language is to make fun of people in public. That's how you know I like you. I like you. But let me like you back. Let me just say to the audience because I believe there's a couple of people tuning in, that the reason I'm talking to you today is because you're launching a show on this very network. It's called the story behind the story behind the story behind the story behind the story. It airs Saturday nights at 9 p.m.. That's basically, that's like, that's a big time on TV. A lot of people are going to watch your show. Don't get nervous. But I think it's just something. Here's my issue. Got it. I want to know about this show. But before I ask you about this show, don't do me a favor, do my audience for most people know who you are. But if somebody says to you, Mike Rowe, who are you, what are you known for? What do you say? I'm dying to hear this. Oh, son of John and Margaret. One of three boys, the oldest. And not necessarily the most successful, but certainly the busiest. You may know me from shows like dirty jobs. Somebody's got to do it. Returning the favor.

'Defender of the Faith' Author Joseph Pearce Shares His Story

"Story. You've been on the program before, but we have many new listeners who, first of all, they're wondering, what is that lovely accent? Where do you live now? What is your story? How did you come to be who you are today, which is to say a writer of many books and a man of deep Christian faith. Well, I mean, I told the story, Eric in a book called race with the devil, my journey from racial hatred to rational love. But in a nutshell, I, as a very young man, there's a 15 year old to be precise, what involved with white supremacist politics. I was very anti Christian, very anti Catholic, and very secular, and sort of worshiped that secular fundamentalism of Adolf Hitler. So it was through the reading, first of all, of writers such as G.K. Chesterton, who as you can see behind me there still looks after me like a guardian angel. It was a reading of Chester Turner bell or C. S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and some of his great Christian figures that led me away from the darkness and that coupled with a spiritual healing, which I didn't even understand until I could look back in retrospect. This miraculous healing coupled with the reason that I was receiving from these great Christian writers that led me away from the abyss and really my life since my conversion has been one of gratitude for that conversion and a desire if you like to make up for all the bad things I did prior to my conversion by trying to live a good and faithful life and bring other people to the truth of Christ. And where did you

Exotic Foods (MM #4056)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. Last week, my wife and I were watching the history channel on Sunday nights we watched a show called the food that made America. And they were talking about tacos. I'll be honest with you. I think I can remember the first time I had tacos. Probably in the late 1960s. I know we were living in Wyoming, so I was in first grade when I had tacos, at least for the first time, or at least when I remember. And they were saying on the show, the guy who basically created Taco Bell was the one who brought mainstream hard shell tacos to the world, and at the time in the late 50s, early 60s when he was getting started, tacos were considered exotic food. And the word exotic just kind of hit me in a weird way. When I think of exotic, I think of like that bizarre food show with Andrew zimmern. Sure. I mean, I've had Elk and I've had ostrich and I've had rattlesnake and I guess those are exotic foods or maybe I don't know. I don't even know what an exotic food is. At one time, tacos were exotic. Of course, now they're one of my favorite foods that have been since forever. But now I wonder when was the first time I had a taco? Was I eating exotic food in first grade and didn't know it? Wow.

Dr. Michael Youssef on His Exciting New Book 'Never Give Up'

"He has a new book, perfect title for this day and age, it is called never give up. Doctor Michael youssef, welcome back to America first. Thank you so much, doctor gawker, great to be with you. I had such fond memory of my being in your studios, not long ago. Thank you so much for having me. We'll have to get you back into a brand new studios that are debuting today. So right now we are conversing via the amazing possibilities of technology and it's I'm so far so good. Things are working well. So well done everybody and both sides of our my team and your team. You've written 50 plus books past the you surf. Why this one and why this message, please tell our audience. Well, we live in such an amazing time in all my 73 years of life. I have never seen more people turning their back on the Christian faith than in the back on morality turning their back on biblical ethics that it's so depressing and I'm one of those people that I don't just like to curse the darkness, but I like to light a light. And so as I thought about it, what could be greater word of warning encouragement alarm bells than the book of second Timothy, which is the very last words of the apostle Paul brought from the dungeon in Rome which I've been there with my wife and we've seen what a terrible place it was. What he was. And yet he was writing to his disciple Timothy saying, look, his was going to happen. Here's the falsehoods are going to face and you need to stand up and be counted and never, never, never give up. And so that is really the message that I bring, not from me, but from the apostle Paul, but then he goes on in that epistle and says, here's what's going to happen in the last days. The evil ones are going to go from bad to worse and have you ever seen more lying across the land than across the world really the lying has become truth and the truth becomes a lie, darkness is light light as darkness. And so this is the time I want to plead with everybody who loves God, everybody who believes in the biblical morality and biblical truth to stand up and be

Ghost Kitchen (MM #4037)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. There's a phrase in the food and beverage restaurant, even delivery industry. You're going to be hearing more about the coming years. It's called the ghost kitchen. A ghost kitchen is basically a kitchen and a warehouse, if you will, where the people at the grill make all sorts of different types of food. And what I'm reading about is restaurants, fast food places like Taco Bell, like McDonald's, all doing these kitchens where they don't have drive up customers, they're strictly creating these kitchens for delivery sake. So if you get your McDonald's or your Burger King or your pizza delivered, it's not coming from a store necessarily. It's coming from a ghost kitchen. Then some of these kitchens are even pretending to make these foods. I've got a friend who's getting involved in the ghost kitchen industry. And he won't talk a lot about it because it's got a hush hush right now, but I'm reading more about ghost kitchens here in Nashville. And it's going to get very interesting. I have a feeling. Ghost kitchens could be the future of food delivery. Could be the future of restaurants in general because nobody wants to go sit in a restaurant anymore. You can't find help. You can't find service and the food just isn't as good as it used to be. An interesting thought.

"A week off during the second one of those weeks but versus the world wars and indeed in the current situation. We haven't missed an issue since nineteen eleven. And i know you must have heard our episode where we did lots of exits from bringing world for the ban on world war two ringing indeed. Yep ended up in lots of parallels drawn and in my own head with those kinds of times. I think we really are for ringers. What's going on at the moment. Could well be just as serious in a way as that. The wool ban on ringing went on for a lot longer. The thing today which is interesting is that has quite a feeling amongst ringers. Ringing was that's a little bit of a tipping point anyway. Around the present unethical the covid could be more than simply applause from ringing for several months. And then a resumption it could. Well be a lot more critical than not than where do you see the role of the ringing willed in in that scenario. One of the things that we found when we carried on publishing rights beginning of lockdown was how many people got in touch with us to say just how much it meant to them. Actually having the ringing world. Still coming through the letterbox. Every friday and that was really meaningful so that it has quite a sort of central place in keeping is together so i hope that we can keep that through this. I mean a much more easy answer to your question would be will hope to have material to help. Bring us back out of lockdown. When that happens we've already run. Simone articles in the last few months about how you can carry on recruiting and retaining ring during lockdown. We'd like to have some more educational articles one of the things that people have done a lot. More in lockdown ring ham bells rang methods on handbells. So we've had some articles on how to do that and simple education for that kind of thing. And i'd like to do more on that one thing i wanted to ask you about was what articles in the world. Recent ones were particularly appeal to newer. Is again batch. The current situation. We've tried to have quite a few introductory articles to all the various things that have sprung into being during so platforms like ringing handbells stadium dating some of the other virtual ringing opportunities. We've tried to introduce people to those and give people good guides to them. We have columnists. I hope talk about things. That new ring is will be experiencing. We try to have education as i say as much as possible on indeed amendment way near the end of a series of educational articles. Cooled the education column and this series has been quite soon whistle-stop too early methods. And how you might proceed through those first days of rigging particularly how you might work together between the taco and under bring in thinking about those early years. also hype that new ringers. Find all sorts of other articles interesting as well. I don't think we necessarily need you know articles that say. This is a new ring as the sunday a lot of jogging. And rigging and you can't always get rid of it all. But i tried to explain things where a can i'm where it's appropriate and i don't think that someone's just because someone's a new ring. They can't find an oscar interesting about someone they don't know or methods they can't ring. I think the affected the ringwald has continued through everything through thick and thin..

Once the bally's unlocked, it may be leave it to the balance with one hand on the lip of the bell and the other braced on the frame. The Bells are then pushed over the balancing turn to ring rounds. As the bell swings into its pit on the head stock rises the ring at uses the hand that was on the frame to push the head stuck down to maintain momentum. A I is quite unnerving to realize that as you're pushing down on the head stock to bring the full circle, the self is rising high above you. It's also vital to grasp the moving head stock well away from the edge, or there's a risk to your thumb as the head start passes the frame where there's only a very small gap. Each ringer then turns to repeat the action with the other arm had stock as the bell swings the other way. Possibly, the hardest thing is to move your body to the same rhythm as the bell so that Hans an arms are not in the wrong place at the wrong time. To set the bill, the ring applies a bit of extra forced to the headstone and virtually catches the bell as it swings to the balance before resting in its set position. Because of the way, the bells rung and the fact that the rings where defenders because of the noise method ringing really isn't practical. It is possible to wrinkle changes or to hunt the trouble through the other full bells twice to add a bit of variation and returned to rounds. All of this of course is highly skilled and potentially dangerous, and there have inevitably been the odd or to in the past. But with proper tuition can skill the East Burger.

"A son came along and installed the bells. We had some bells that were with the Caltech trust been taken out of decommission churches, and we met Kinchen arrangement with a Scottish association that they let a by a knock down price. Price, if you like so understanding that if ever the bells ceased to be used in rings, and we'd have to give them back to the scorch sociation. We're very happy with that condition, and we've had a peal of twelve bells about eight hundred eight, and then we realized after we'd had a couple of large come through that actually one pilo bells was not enough, and so we installed a very light appeal of eight called the last tower, because I was insistent that that was the end of Belfry creation schemes says called the last half then. When we ended up spending more of our time in Alderney. We thought we'd better put some bells in the garbage.

I accident Iran into Christening. I didn't realize it was a Christly. I think that's about it really Linda. What what have we covered the mistakes that creeps in I? I made a little Notre Bates as I was walking down to ring for Christmas last year. I fast aged morning after boaty was asleep and there was a little different inside my heart with a smile knowing that any minute now this village was going to be going to be walking by the most holy noise. You're about to create reflecting Joey. Permission to wait till the village. What time did you say that was in half past eight in the morning? Walking down for the seven o'clock service. Nine o'clock service was lists. Basi- diplomat crept in their Linda. I'm going to ask you the final two questions apart from the towers that you regularly ring at which your favorite ring of bells and why wouldn't say with experienced enough to new a gold ring of bells when I hear them all when I'm ringing them I'd I think I can say mass worth out of all the ring. The ring do because of the the atmosphere in the belt in the ringing chamber. I think I can do. Stop Law by experience. It's a very safe happy environment. And you feel encouraged and you feel free to do what he wants to do. Some of the other churches. There's an awful lot more going on and and it's not focused around you and rightly so we are reading purpose and I don't think my own bells my exit bells. They're only three of them. So you limited as to what you can do with them and and we don't bring them closed. So the village could only tolerate so much tweets guide mice repetitively over and over again. We'd like to keep bringing. We like to keep them hoods but we'd like to be a standard where they are listening to so I think it's got to be massless because he is quite a special place very protected. Place to rig right Nuts and. Can you describe Mas with some more? Oh it's it's a beautiful churches six bells and the quite light said very easy to ring. They've been rehome the Tele Cops responsible and his team taking them down taking the most to lift breath on the canal and then bringing them back in them. Having them reinstalled they are a nice easy six to ring. The you also know a confident that they are in good working out which is thought crosses your mind. Sometimes you stood eight hundred swinging blindly. But I think it's been. It's a nice old bridge slice place to go with Little Brown the coroner. It's quite a drive for me but it's an easy drive so I I enjoy the the trout as well as the ratings and what remarkable things have happened to you. That wouldn't have happened if you hadn't taken up our ringing. I'm not sure whether it's a good point. And it's remarkable I realize just how my mental capacities drainings. I'm getting older. It's probably important. I appreciate. It's but it did come as a shock that I could no longer holding commission process quick enough in my own head. Something that I've always been able to do so I think it Absolutely remarkable to me. It's quite useful information to have knowing Lose it so. I think it's given me more encouragement to keep going to get to the standard where I sit when I give it my best. I think the remarkable bit comes from just doing the ringing just knowing that you. I'm doing something that and has been installed in sixteen hundreds and it was home and it was made. It was rolled by all those people before me. I think it's quite an and quite remarkable. Thanks to my guess Clinton Huggy. My next guest is any longstaff. Who's only been bell ringing for a few weeks high any? Hello Good Morning Kathy. Ruining any. What made you think of taking it bell ringing. Well it certainly not based on my bucket list but having too few people who who've got friends who started bell ringing or have been doing it for a long time and I thought that was something I could try. It's always good to start. New Hope is keeping trusting different things and try new skill. So that's why I thought I'd give it a go. What did you thought about blowing before you took it up It's it's a fantastic sound isn't it? I've been singing all my life and a lot of my thing has been involved before beginning churches so do happen an association with churches and cathedrals. And it's wonderful to hear the bells isn't it? How did you find out where to go? Well I thought the best way was to to serve on the net and see what was there and what was about and I came across the association bringing T- Aut as so I emailed them an had very nice cmo back from rose. Ninety Gal who CR have been a straighter and she said that she put me in touch with somebody who lived locally name. May and that's how I got to hear of Allen Bradley Who Rings Ripple Minced. Answering did he lives invert so Which is very close to where I am. And he was very happy to help you. Stop on what was your first impressions. Well he invited me to a rehearsal session just to come and listen just to see the ring in action and yet it was a great privilege to be able to go up to the Tara. Wimborne Minster see the people ringing the bells on to hear them. And yes it. It's one of the the best pills in the country so be told and yes it was wonderful sound and I thought yes agree like to try this further. Did you understand everything that was going on? He did explain it to be very well and there are some very good videos as well on Youtube and on this little bubbles in the the Belfry so that helps to explain how things were much better and He did show me up to the Bell Tower itself where the bells and we went through the different parts of the bell and so that made it clear how. We're going to work and I thought that helped to not you mentioned digital models. What are those this well a little mock-ups of the stock and the bell hanging from it and the wheel and so you can actually see in action by pulling on the little cold you cannot see how the bells Mu within the actual framework. It's it's total mockup of the chill bell. How big was the modal? Oh not very big. I would say probably about ten to twelve inches high about thirty centimeters for metric friends. So then then. What was the next thing that happened? After you seen them in action in Beaumont yes well obviously via to come along to a one to one session which was arranged. Shamir to mutual time which is great that was also wimborne minster and I had to want to one with Allen which was a great way to start to feel under any pressure. Having to to ring with other people watching me. I'm so that was. That was great really and he was very supportive very sympathetic and and very patients so and having a whole hour initially great. So that that that really helped. What's happened since then? I got to the stage where I now being able to to ring by myself and So I was invited along to the tar ring which which is where. I'm going to practice on a regular basis. They may on Wednesday evenings and I got to meet the rest of the team. And so lovely bunch of people very friendly very welcoming and I've last week of only just started to ring with the others so we did one round not quite the right place but it was great to get the feeling of bringing with other people which which is lovely. How does it vary? Then you sort of ringing on your own and then ring with other people. What does now does that feel. Nice well when I first Wrung Amaya with. The bell was muffled so I couldn't even hear the sound to tool so that was to annoy debussy. Simple but now when I go to Ringwood I cannot see here my suffering the bell and yes it's a it's a great feeling and I hope next week to be able to do a little bit more with the Others Brennan. And can you describe the art process learning package now that they do for new boring school learning the ropes? And you get to little log book. And it's it you go through the process the different techniques and and it helps you understand your progress and where it's all going to lead to eventually so it's a very good learning tool on just the initial stages but from we hope to be moving on shortly to the rows and the different types of methods. What steps have you gone through in the art process so far well? It's all about breaking the technique down into into small sections so learning how to to do the backstroke. That's hanging onto the tail. And then doing the ham stroke So we do. That separately is start. Takes one part and then the learning to take part and then you try and put the two together and it's actually building up the technique. What are you looking forward to most? In your bell ringing career I would hope to do the culture ages and things like that so the different methods. I've read that the older you are. It may be a little bit more difficult than if you started young. But I'm going to certainly give it to go and we'll see how he gets on any of the things. Do you think we should talk about? This is certainly because I'm sixty one now and I've just spent the last two years sailing around the world so I've come back a line legs back trying to do the do the things that I've enjoyed that I've missed you know over the gays and I've I think it's always good to to try something new and you know be interested in something totally different parts bit outside the comfort zone. So that's why this ago. What would you say to someone who isn't a bell ringer? Who might just be thinking about it. Well I did meet a lady the other day who was interested him bell ringing but she didn't think it was for her and she was similar agent. I said yes. You know half ago you know you you gonNA get onto lead try and you know people are very welcoming. It was difficult when you go to. A new place is not meet New People and one to how? It's all going to go but it's a lot of fun and I would say you know do give it a go. It's a new challenge. It's great I hope this will encourage people to take up this. I've also been told about tower. Talk which is an online magazine and I would encourage people to to read that I was also told about about throughout so definitely go to the website and this lots and lots of useful information and I think the best thing about it is which I didn't realize was that you can ring anywhere else in the country. Once you you've mastered it you can try the other churches and I think that's fantastic and I sing in a choir and I know that I could just go up to another part of the country and and singing and other costs. That is a fantastic.

Podcast where I cafe booth interview novices. And some of the most famous ringers in the world as they reveal the mysteries of this heard but often hidden on the first of my guest. Today is Linda Huggy who started ringing in February. Two Thousand Seventeen Linda. What made you think of taking it boring. I didn't think of it really until I read our local magazine and the towel cops in whose gentleman I knew but didn't know that he on the end of a rope occasionally and he was advertising for marinas. Sadly I hadn't fisted our battles with silent over the Christmas and that was because it wasn't so he was pushing an address in the local magazine. And eventually I answered it and here I am. What did you thought about bell ringing before you took it up. How do you ever given any thought? I didn't give the actual ringing any whatsoever but I have always loved listening to the balance as a small child going to sleep listening to the the footsteps going Outside my grandma's house the bells calling the footsteps leading with some sleet to honestly. What was your first experience? You saw the advert and then and then. What was the next thing that happened? I contacted our child captain. We knew each other. We both walk dogs and he said that they didn't have regular practices. Exert Matt Sny local church but we all winter long Shopping then athletes a few miles away. And they have a ground set at six bells anti-clockwise six pounds and there. I joined seven or eight people of all different standards and I went there once a week and had a row trust in my hand. I enjoyed eight. I was a long way out of my comfort zone. I didn't have much standing OBITA toll. They did their best with me. They were kind. They gave me nothing loss of China. Because there wasn't GonNa Time. We had an hour and a half practice once a week So there was to learn as in front of me and then be and I was given perhaps about to lots of ten minutes which was enough to wet my appetite and and also in may be appreciated. I needed an awful lot ball. So what happened next then? Sappington where was going. They have silver breaks unless Soon as people to do regular ringing so the Italian Cup today calls break somewhere and I felt so frustrated that there was nothing left for me here I was with a very true dampened appetite. Nothing to do so. I scoured the Internet for somebody to teach me to ring bells. Not Knowing what resources are out there and I found the learning loops which is provided by the Association of ringing teaches and they had a simulator at the church not too far away so I contacted the towel. Cotton there who I think was a little taken aback by my request out glue. Please teach me how. During Bell's it sounds so simple and later on that month. I got a call from him to say he'd also how to request about ten of the ladies who were having new Belgian strong back in that village. But without any ringers. So I was adopted and I've been going to Tomasz Russ weather is simulator once a week so a lot of ladies and lots of ladies. Yes initially they were ten and they are also. They're they're a lot younger than me. And also they have families and dogs and they're scoring boats it raising money to get these panels full circle. How many people did you have teaching? Not many new rings. How did that seem to be a whole team? Abc's wonderfully encouraging people. Initially we made our introductions and there was just a two but three and four and five and six all qualified teachers have been Korean going and doing their sleuth outs. Jearl sorts of reasons have lots of commitments. So there's no quite Is now the ones that are left with quite dedicated? We quite determined that doggedly determined. Very good can you describe the art course for those. That don't know what it was a whole new experience to me. I didn't realize that note into ring. A Bell could structured and I was getting into books and it joining the girl guides. It was quite exciting and we were given a password an entrance into lots of online and help and resources. We have an online facebook page that we also have joined and nat his full. The learn is only closed page so we can ask a lot of very city questions in usually gets very But the learning the ropes game. You should very stupid safe so progression. You feel very supported. You've got lots of different resources. Booklets the people that are teaching you to ring seem to know how to teach as well as ring bells challenged with with me. I think I'm probably one of the older. And they are very kind very tape and there is a loss of health outlet the tickly with having Sydney nature. You can be left to your own devices. Play and learn the hard way which sometimes is a good thing to do. Can you describe the simulator generally means that the rest of the bids is to Noy by our colleagues? The Bells are closed at Man not outside the tower and the noise we hear in the tower in a simulated noise is a. Tux comes from the computer. We also have a Webcam on the bills. So if you've got time you could look at the camera and seeing what the bill that you're reading is doing or not and it means that we can do what we like and make noises relied renouncing owing anybody outside. They are beautiful belt solution to but not always way ringing. What have you found the hardest learning to ring? Oh the hottest is remembering. It's I think it's an aging thing and was client shock. I retired six years ago and always being physically active and enjoyed doing things and enjoy the challenge that being told subside and actually understanding it is fine that remembering it the next time the knee along is very very hard somehow recalling it at the right moment even though I know he exists the instruction somebody will will sound. Instincts are not yet your and you know it's going to be you shouting it too. And then he what they say. And then you says when me. Oh it's a bit like being in a headlight and I don't know why but it certainly never used to happen in my younger days. So I'm assuming it's an agency it's very frustrating. Not only for me. I'm sure the people frustrating as well but to kind to say show. Well what sort of things do they shout at you? What I don't hear how well they have to shout to be heard shocking aggression at all often too slow or I'm clanging alday shouting instructions as to where I should be and sometimes I do know that. Obviously it's not being transferred to where I am in in the bell secrets knowing where I should be and then also knowing where I am too thanks so most of it is helpful instructions shouting which is very kind of been very much appreciated. You know everybody has been so so helpful. They are an amazing band of people in such patients. What have you rung so far? I got my certificate my second grade but I am learning to ring plane. Hunts which I can ring a shopping tower we I was taught to ring following the numbers which act now appreciating the need to know the place you're in. I'm struggling with that. I'm struggling to know my place. I have to cover ringing the tenor. Which is lovely feeling? But I wouldn't say I was very good at it very regular attic very steady i. I could certainly ring rounds. I know what the code changes are but I do is under the master. There is distinct. Got a tweet by bringing transmitting Moham- supposed to do to my hands actually doing it. Generally I do what I should have done so I would still say I'm very much a novice but a willing not miss. What have you enjoyed most about ringing? Oh I think I've enjoyed just the beauty of moving. These Jain Nola spells these huge pieces of metal that are steeped in history and tradition and mateen the making noise. I do think it's an incredible honor to be allowed to be let loose on these instruments and and I think it's it's enjoying. I'm enjoying giving something to the community. We were shot of Bell ringers. I would say I was a valuable member of the team yet. Bbut it's only got so we've now got two new ballerinas so we are going to keep our bells heard which I think is so important so yes. I've enjoyed following in the footsteps of the Great. The but have gone before somebody. Who's listening to this? Who hasn't even thought taking it boring until they listen to this. Podcast what would you say to them? Oh give go. It's addictive exercise. It gets you out gets you into dark corners of buildings that you never knew existed to meeting the most amazing band of people kind thoughtful so experienced. It's lovely listening to their stories anecdotes and learning from them. A lot of people go on ringing trips. It's very social activity or it doesn't have to be pretty it certainly teamwork and it's very very addictive. You've got to learn how to do the next thing. All you've got learn how to do it properly before you can move onto the next thing and I enjoyed that you mentioned ringing trips. What are those? Yes the Calcutta Massless is tireless in his work and organizes a monthly trips with at least three and a and they to around ringing bells. They've never had towns to ring before Some of them are in very strange circumstances. We got into two weeks with battles which would have called Doi Abboud but he was a challenge. It seems to be that. The ring is experienced. Ringers are very supportive of each of the towers so you do find our special occasions. The Carload going around wringing it all the services for the occasions.

"Do you have any stories of the particular towers that you visited? Will every tower tells the story? I suppose into so many now. It's hard to pick out individual stories. But what I love about dubious is and you can see in the Belfry and see all these little pieces of history that no one ever gets to see like the different frame a bell installations and things like appealable hidden up in old ringing chambers and an old old equipment lurking about bits will head stock and things laying about finding oil interesting. Is there anything else that you think? We should have covered that. I haven't osteopaths suppose what we could have done is included. Some of these sounds to come to a company that we've just spoke about. Yes that would be good. Especially that specifically mentioned that's Michael's in Norwich Wealth Caused Laney which is part of norge. You'll be able to listen to brief recordings of ringing from Qasr. Laney and two of contrasting tires at the end of this interview after Christmas answered the final. Two questions though. Yes the big questions. Yes apart from the towers that you regularly ring at which your favorite ring of bells on why that is a tricky on a very interesting question towers regularly ring at a whole variety variety of towers. But this one I ring at occasionally and I do like this sound. But they've I'd do go there sometimes. And that's Chroma on the North Norfolk coast. Used to be six there now eight. But it's just something about tuning the I really like and the in the Bell Chamber is very large and so they have a nice ringing echo. I quite like that and they go nicely as well and the final question is what remarkable things have happened to you. That wouldn't have happened if you hadn't taken at bell ringing. Well I think we've just about covered one of those. I mean this this recording project when I set out to do this are didn't think that I would end up doing like this. I'm going up in all these belfries and things. I thought that was. That was something I would never be able to do. But because of the part of the bell ringing fraternity it's giving me the opportunity to expand and and take this product on earth. And what have you got from that? A very large collection of recordings. How'd you manage them all of course like yourself with this podcast? There is quite editing involved. It's it's a very dedicated task. But one I can do with my experience narrowing filmmaking and sound recording sanity. It's something I can do and I enjoy it now again to listen to some of the able simulator output from some of the recordings of the Norwich that Chris has recorded firstly. The Norwich Caused Laney said Michael's bells the thirty bells.

"Hi Welcome to the fun with bells. Podcast where I- Kathy Booze Interview Novices and some of the most famous rings in the world as they reveal the mysteries of this heard but often hidden off my guest today. Is Chris Richmond? Who produces youtube videos about Norfolk and has recently taken up boring? Hello Chris Hello Chris. Can you tell me a bit about? You'LL YOUTUBE SERIES. And how it led you to taking bell. Ringing first and foremost is a an amateur filmmaker making films about my local area always have done especially this hidden stuff that people don't really know about and bell ringing seems to be one of those but aside from making the films. I also like recording sound as well and thinking of things to record a subject. Church bells seemed quite appropriate living in Norfolk being surrounded by high concentration of medieval churches. When you thought of recording the church bells how did you go about it? Well things like clock chimes and that we over clock chimes exist and the ones I knew about I went to recall those initially and then there was a twelve bell chime barrel the I also went to record but in terms of change ringing you know proper reading. I didn't really know where to start. And it wasn't until I came across the website for my local association of bringing in and on that website listed a whole list of these towers and their practice nights which was a wonderful source of information. And so then I went to visit one of these practices. Just just to make some test recordings and see what it was about but when I go to the church which was church and halt as I arrived there was actually service in the Church and about twenty minutes later the People Start Finding out. The church just happened to catch. One of the church goes in conversation. And I said I said to Mash Nobel's tonight. He says Oh yeah. Hey for the bill also said Yeah. He says one of the ring. I'm just GONNA go home. Get changing and I'll be back. Go wait at the base of the tower and so I did what. It wasn't long before I got invited up the tower and into the thick of it now was in the ringing chamber. Will this wonderful stuff going on around me and did you understand everything that is going on not really not to begin with now the Ren- jog and really it was like another another language? So what happened next well? So we're starting to understand what was going on. They had to the bells up. I in their upright position. But one thing that really sticks out in my memory and this is how I really got hooked on the bug is when they start to ring them down in pill and I decided to go outside the church and record this you know so you got the sound of the bell is and I really like the tone start resonating bells quicker and quicker to me as a complete outsider. It was like wow what is it was just noise about. And he has quite simply the bills just being lowered for. This is wonderful. I really enjoyed this evening. And then I decided to sign up to my proper home tower and start ringing. Can you describe what you found easy or difficult about when you were learning to ring? Well this thing. People don't understand how difficult is after my my initial session. They are aren't did go away. And I started watching youtube videos about bellary in and also so I was prepared for it to be difficult and it was but now told me this story. My First Session. I was reading hand on backstroke. By the end of the session. This is this is my enthusiasm taking over here But again with my recording adventures. I went to another church following day of following evening. Which was kings adminster and I was hovering outside the minster with my recording device and one of the ringlets came down says. Oh you waiting to come in because they locked the door to keep that drunks Lingui- out the church and so I ended up being invited upstairs again and they said to me. Do you ring as well last night. And Harry was on the end of a rope again. Doing the hand stroke I and instruct there. I think it was David Truman and he then got doing both strokes and we were ringing away nicely and then we sort of go into conversation and then. I made my first almost fighter era. I missed the catching the sally. And before you know the Asahi hallward first split second before ripping up and taking home with it and off Davis let go let go so so I did. I just let go the whole rope. Which of course you're not supposed to but bearing one. This is my second session so that was a big confidence knock but nevertheless I kept at it because I had the enthusiasm to do. So what bringing have you done since then? Well gone through the the usual procedure. I suppose rounds. They didn't call changes and eventually plane hunt which it did seem like an obstacle at the time to get around that. Because it's not it's not quite as simple as it sounds especially the physical aspect of controlling your bell so where I'm up to now move on from plane hunt and to method some just about mastered plain Bob Doubles now. Plenty of six Bell Towers where I live so that seems to be almost a limit to a lot of people's learning round here and what occasions of you run for where we've done things weddings and of course they the Remembrance Day last year of course starting to ring lost you. I did sign up to the bringing remembers project so in fact I actually covered seven towers. Iho quite pleased about seven Iranians. Yes well. The whole event was very organized. And everyone uploaded all this ringing throughout the day. So I thought I'll go on a little bit of an adventure and join as many as I could. It's nice to be something. Yes yes and then I wanted to talk to you about your recent project if you could tell us a bit about that my my recent project something that started off just as an experiment idea that it's now evolved into something very obsessive and that is recording the sounds of Norfolk's church bells for use in ringing simulators. Because we got wonderful new facility here in Norfolk which is manned craft ringing Discovery Center norge. We've got eight dumbbells and to have the sound of real bells in. There was a wonderful idea and now ended up going round all these different churches recording all these sounds and so that they can be used with the dumbbells said that people can see. Can you tell me a bit about how that came about? Cut member exactly came about but something something was said between Nikki. Thomas the Center manager and Myself One day when I was in the practising on the seeming NATO which I do if I can get in there once a week or something and because of recorded the sound of bells now for a year and a half say I've actually managed to record clean single strikes from inside Belfries and I quite pleased to how they turned out so I tried a few more. And we got in in the simulators. Men Croft and it's just spiraled on from there and now it's like I've got to recall the mall now because they also different. And how do you record them? Officially place my recorder in the BELFRY. I can't be up there myself because I have to be back down in the ringing chamber for safety reasons also conduct the session. So what we need to do is we need to record a clean strike of each bell individually and stroke backstroke without hitting the stay. Because when you stand the bell and resting against the stay here in the reading chime but up above you do hear this clack clack clack as I found out in my early recordings. So this is something we now skillfully trying avoid well equipment. Jeez my recorder is very basic. It's zoom h five is a specialised field recorder handles the loud volumes very well and it does record at high quality in Stereo of and I think it sounds wonderful. And why do you do? This guy. Goes BACK TO MY interest in recording sound and wanting to record the sound church bells but this is a bit more of the purposeful and I like the interactive element to it and hearing people's reaction to it. I'd love positive feedback when people try the bells out in the man craft ringing Discovery Center. And we've even had things like the the men coffee drinks themselves go in there and practice. Rink appeals and even have these things could guess the name of the bills things like that which I think is brilliant because they said they sound very different between the different tires. That you that you do say Chris. What's the difference in the signs of the different bells? Well it's hard to describe really would say you have to hear it for yourself but some resonate really nicely and others quite so dull and thirty and there's one particular tower in Norwich which I believe sounds the white does because of all the pollution it suffered during the industrial revolution. And all that and of course the tuning is another thing. That's different about me. There are a lot of very quirky sounding. Rings hair in Norfolk. Because they're all different ages. Some were old men Iran and and some have bells from elsewhere in the country. So we have a mixed bag just gives every tower. Its UNIQUE CHARACTER. And.

Sound obviously the other commonplaces veterans. With as he's as you've commented large do vase lots of mattresses around these really do tend to be good environments to record in and you mentioned the curtains. Would you draw the curtains. Yes usually s right. I just want that. That's been great answering those questions. I just want to know a little bit more about the twelve Belle. Comtesse when it's happening and where it's happening this Aaron what you did to prepare for it fantastic well. The twelve oaks contest if people onto where is a two stage competition says group of eliminators and this year? They're going to be held at some Mary. Redcliffe Avenue Bristol and Samari Lebeau in London and Leeds Minster in leads so the competition is going to be on Saturday. The twenty third of March. And they're gonNA be old ringing events So this the drawer is usually. It's about ten in the morning and I bands will ring at eleven o'clock ringing. We'll go onto about four o'clock in the afternoon. The three bands from each venue which school the highest. We'll go onto the final where they'll be joined by the hometown tile which is Exeter and that will be on such day the twenty second of June again. It's an old event if anyone's close to these towers than I really recommend going long. They're a fantastic day to hear some ringing but also just to hang around. Have a bit of socializing is usually excellent catering at these events and always like just to visit a city and its towers just to see so go somewhere. Different and big competitions a great. Excuse to turn up. I've heard they have good beer tents but I couldn't comment positively or negatively these. They're serious on their The actually mowing personal rating for Toba competitions is with says any beer left for the technical team. Once we finish clearing up.

"I think we'd better move onto the question that I've got for you. Three questions to be the first one is from Andy. Andy says his towers. King Record Bells for the BBC bells on Sunday Program. And he's got a budget of about one hundred fifty two hundred seventy to do that. What equipment should he by an Should he go about doing the recording as a big question is his big question? But it's it's fantastic. Question Bells on Sunday is one of the sort of mice public pieces of a bell. Performance that you can. Actually she think over in my opinion. Yeah it's on public radio every week and I think it's it's a great project I'm under no that they're always looking for good recordings. I'm to use for it as not a complete surplus so if anyone's thinking I would do it but they always seem to have some saying actually no. I'm sure they want to recording for me so to go onto it. It is just an ordinary recording bells. You don't need anything particularly special but I think we need to take into account the points that we mentioned about really finding a space which sounds like your battles the. It's the most critical thing. Where are you going to record the sound? From as we've said within the BELFRY is one option and certainly many recordings rebels on Sunday are done like that but there are also plenty of other opportunities. If you're tyrod has avoid to. That is a sound mixing room either above or below the ringing chamber than that can be a good place to recruit from then town stack cases can sometimes work and sometimes it can work from the body of the Church Even more cases can be on record from outside the church but do be careful. There's not a lot of additional noise in terms of equipment. You need once. You've decided on the recording place. I use a small portable digital recorder in the lines twelve work. It's a product cool to zoom h four and pro and the think there may even be a link to it in the information attached to the podcast that will be yes excellent good so it's a fantastic small recorder if it's in the palm of your hand. The cost is almost exactly that I think you're you can pick pick up for one hundred and sixty pounds knee and great thing about it. Does have built in microphones. So as long as you've got somewhere to put it then you can get a good recording just with us. You don't necessarily need any extra. I think one of the things to remember is bells are little bit unusual in terms of the fact. They're very loud but they don't have a very wide range of variation of volume so we don't setting up to record. Do make sure that the the level so the recording level is appropriate. Because the loud. They don't have much dynamic range. We call it the the loud bits on the soft bits almost the same volume when recording for the twelve bell. We actually have the bells recorded quite quietly but for something. I bells on Sunday. You can really afford to make sure that the level meter. Whatever you'RE USING TO GAUGE. How loud you can put that fairly close to the top end of the spectrum. So what would that be in terms of number of Mind Tina? If people familiar with it we would record a trope. Bocom tested minus twenty four. Db's Which is on those. We might foreign. It's where they level which was about halfway up the display and full recordings that you listen to in other ways I'd go for about minus twelve DB so again zoom cool. That's about three quarters of the way up the display. So if you wanted to do a more involved in station than you can use additional microfinance and the ones that we typically use arrives they are bearing at Xm eighteen hundred s that dynamic microphone. So that means it's Mike that doesn't require any kind of power supply. They're very good. At how Sean say cost effective and you can pick them up for under twenty pounds that very robust and you can eat them hung in the BELFRY and they're very good. If you want to permanent installation the way that would work as you'd hang the microphone and then run the cable to elsewhere where it's more convenient have a sound recorder and the sound recording you're talking about would be one like the one you've just recommended that's what you plug it into. Absolutely yes the one thing about the Z. H. for it's very verse. Tarraco that you can use it either directly for recording sand with its interim like friends or you can plug in next electrifying. Other options are bearing see twos again. Quite cost effective looking eastbound. Forty pounds for a pair that condenser mics. So the need a power supply but they again very good quality and reasonably cost effective. Should probably mentioned this earlier. Bits the Bells on Sunday. We really ought to be looking at stereo recordings for the radio. And say if you're going for external Mike's it's could have to available. And then finally the Mike Friends views for the competition. Bed anemic too. I won T gs so they're quite step. Up their professional microphones but again very robust that the dynamic they don't need a power supply But they have a very very good pickup pattern so the the main variation between all of these various different Mike Friends we've discussed is exactly the shape of the pickup pattern that goes in from them and I've been very satisfied with all of as in bell recording applications. What if somebody doesn't have a budget so jones written and he says he hasn't got any budget is just is smartphone? But he would like to record his the bells in his tower. Maybe put it on twitter all onto the website for his tower. Do you think he could get anything? That would sound reasonable. And if so how would you go about it? I'm Sudi And I think that's it's absolutely great idea. If bells have captured your mansion in some situation than the best thing to do is get something out there. Get something on twitter. Get something out to your friends to say. Do you know what I happened to be passing in. This really captured my imagination This really made me feel happy to hear the sound of bells. I think all of the previous points supply. You've got to find some way where there's no excessive noise the bells of relativity Klay Esa. You can hear what it is the listening full so just because it's on a mobile device doesn't diminish any of the need for a bishop thought into setup and I'd say another thing which can be more prevalent with a mobile fines is of course wind noise outdoors in particular. Try make sure in a relatively shelters bought. Because I'm sure we've all had those phone calls where you can hear the wind whistling past the microphone. An unfortunate that it will be the same if you're recording bells by far and away the easiest way to guess recording the balances just take a video and then like tron. You can take the audio outfit. If you only wanted the audio but actually people quite liken will interact with a more or less static shot of a church with the sound of bells on top of it very lucky at Grayson. Mary's in Cambridge where I rang have clergy team which is very very keen on bells in. They put out quite a lot of bell content on social media some from recruited from outside the West Front of the church. Some of it from our coaches on on top of the roof on the tower and they seemed to get very good in traction with those. If you want to move up a level in terms of complexity than you can get hold of APPs for recording sound and. I'd recommend that if you want. Good sound recording. The problem is videos advocate on Francis. They tend to compress the audio. I yet make it smaller. And your obviously you lose some of the fidelity in that process so a couple of APPs. The of come across voice record prior for iphone and then woodyear recruiter for android. I think we can put things in the Shire nights yet Our reach download have adverts in the most APPs tend to do now a days but they allow you find a level of control over the recording and boatswain will allow you to record effectively on compressed which is really good. You mentioned that there will be adverse. Does that mean that be? Actually somebody talking over the top of your bells while they're being recorded. Luckily it's just all on screen advertising. Okay Maria has emailed us as well and she wants some tips on recording a rehearsal of teams tune. Hand Bell ringing okay. Yeah we'll turn humble great and I think the there are a few challenges recording handbells one of that is it actually has a lot more dynamic range than Tau. Bell ringing the reason for that. Is that the strike. Compared with the Is quite different in terms of sound level. So what I'd say is all of the previous point supply that you can use either professional recording equipment such as they zoom recorder maybe with external mic fans. You can use. You'll you'll mobile device to capture recording. I think again because this is going to be an indoors recording most likely you do need to give a lift Consideration to the environment on the one hand. You don't want to be so close. To the hand bell ringers. The again particular bells become dominant but on the other hand if you're going to be cooling from a reasonable distance away then you need to be quite mindful other reflective surfaces yoku stick reflective surfaces such as hard walls or hardwood floors which again to stop distorting the Sandal producing a natural reverberation it all revolves around a skill which which I liked to describe as critical listening. Just listen with your is as you walk around the room and you start to realize that the sound isn't the same everywhere and try and lock into place in the room where you think the recording is as true to what you think. It is as possible. And then that's going to be a good location to record from right. The other thing I was wondering was with setting at the podcast recording. I've started putting Duve as over things and trying to make it so that there's less reflective surfaces is that something that people could do in their room whether rehearsing the handbells. It's a difficult question. I think that obviously lots of sound absorbing material is a good idea but again it can leave sound just a little dry which is great for infuses. We're doing now. I'm pecan leave musical performances just a little bit lacking that obviously in most cases musical performances art Unin performance spaces concerts holes churches and people want the feeling of that being a bishop space around the performers. And so it's it's not. It's not obvious I think I say you don't want a dead sound behind. No probably not or at least the Nice thing is if you have a dead sound than it's possible to add reverberation using a district's unit after the event which can help and bring the sound life a little bit but obviously on do the reverse if you're in a room which has reverberation in it. You can't take down after the event so in that way. A room with a very dead acoustic makes it very good recording environment because then the producer as it were is in full control after the event whereas if you record in room whereas obvious reverberate coup stakes that said what you've put down on recording is more or less all you've got and there's nothing you can do to to change. It really is see. I've I've seen people practicing change ringing on handbells just in their living rooms so would that would be well for them to think whether there's what the effect of different rooms in the house will be absolutely if they've got a choice. Yeah were they. Which would they choose then? What sort of.

"bells" Discussed on Fun with Bells - bell and handbell ringing interviews

"The one thing about church bells as that they are so loud there there are many different forms of reverberation which are important to the overall sound. Mix when you go outside the church. You'll find that it's not only the sound from within the town and then reverberation within the tower. It's also held. The sounded tracks with local buildings and in particular reflecting off surrounding buildings and trees and other structures is what I feel makes up their overall sound makeup of church tower. It's not just the direct sound. It's it's how the sound bounces around and finally arrives at you as the listener. So I like the small rings so I like the plays could Dordrecht which is in Holland and that really really small bells and I started to learn ring there with my parents but I also like more vote. Because they're small. I also like Martins in the bull ring just because there's so many bells and when you hear them all sixteen ringing and you'll part of it it's feels so nice. Hi You're listening to the fun with bells podcast where I- Kathy Booth Interview Novices. And some of the most famous rings in the world to reveal the mistress of this heard but often hidden art. My guest today is Charlie did. How old are you Charlie? I'm eleven years old. What do you like doing outside of school at Bell Ringing? And sometimes Iran running right. Okay and bell ringing. How long have you been ringing for bringing formerly for about three years three years right and how who told you to ring? I was taught by the Birmingham School of Boring. Does anybody else in your family ring. Yes my Mum Dad. And then I've got from. Angola got five generations. Five generations of ringers. Gracious do you ring with any other children yet? I ring with a Youth Group. Called the branding is the branding is and what the thing is do it. What sorts of things do they ring? Some of the bumbling is starting to do plan hunt on the treble but mainly we do ranco changes. Who runs the branding as my dad does? Have they taken part in any competitions? We've gained the ringing World National Youth Contest on. How did you do the? We didn't come last good. I have the prompting has been on television yet. We went on news. Round for the centenary of the end of the world will want what was that like. It was really cool because you see a new light to all those TV shows you see a different side. What did you see? There are just load and load cameras behind and they do a lot of editing. And what do you like about? The Brown. Dinger's is my favorite about. Branding is is that. It's more based on having fun rather than being a serious bell ringing practice. Small have fun with bowing Being the main focus I see. And how was it made from with quite free with downstairs ring? And so we. When it's not your turn you can just go and play and that's fun. And what do you like? Most about boring by favorite about learning is social aspect how this show many barriers and where all the same thing by also like the fairy scientific what sorts of things learning in the theory side where learning fe place notation and how bells course and the actual methods rather than bringing them. How do you learn? Aretha'd I usually treat the methods as plain hunt with other things added so I learned it that way so I finished up the? Oh what's my next bit and then I go go plant hunting place do the maybe the dodge or the place says and then do the next and it's like that. What's dodge a dodgers where you have one place one like wanting in one place and then you go back to the place you were before you did the first Dang and then you go back and then you can do as many of those you want to look? That looks like like I said and the line. I've heard a blue lines do. Do you look at those. Yeah I g look sometimes. Can you tell me what those are? Blue Lines blue lines so you have a red line and Blue Line. The Red Line is I think she should eat the treble. But it's the original and the new line has things editor at. What's the longest you've ever rung? Four is probably one of my court appeals which are about forty five minutes. Oh so you've Rung. Hoot appeals yes. What was that like kind of gets bored? Because it's what the president is always. The set is the same thing repeated but then when you the feeling of the end when they say when they say that soul and you get to ring rounds then you stop and then that's just really nice having stopped and done it and the achievement. Yes and do you know how many quarter Peals you've rung? I've rung about seven. What was your first one. Like the first one. I was a bit worried for because I didn't know whether I was physically able to do it. So it was even more relieve. -Ment where when we finished and luckily my best friend in her mum had bought. Bacon sandwiches so we got to eat those afterwards and that was good great. What do you think is the hardest thing about bell ringing? Sometimes when I finish and it wasn't that good I feel really guilty as I used at that time was so what else have been practicing their thing but I also sometimes it's a bit hard to explain to people who want his walk. Bell ringing is and I find that a bit frustrating. 'cause I know and they don't do your friends school. Know that you ring bells yet. We ran for the annual school service. May and my friend Sarah who rings school and we both ran for that so most people had the belts as they walked from school to the chat and that people do no have they said anything to you about it. Yeah they are they. Are we do things like that and explaining to them? That's difficult yeah. What would you say to somebody who was eleven or younger? Who was thinking of taking bowel ringing? What would you say to them? I'd say it's a really good thing to do. Because it you have the mental side. Bet which is quite challenging Learning touchily ring a bell and being able to tell people. Oh I can ring a bell and it's really fun because it's so unique and no one else really does it and fun to boast about so. My last two questions are apart from the tower that you normally ring in which town do like ringing in best say I like the small rings so I like the place could Dordrecht which is in Holland and that really really small bells and I started to learn with my parents but I also like more vote. Because that's mom I also like Martins in the bull ring just because there's so many bells and when you hear them all sixteen ringing and you're part of it it feels so nice that sounds great ak and animals Christian. Has Anything happened to you that you don't think would have happened if you hadn't rung bells well firstly doing a podcast but also ringing for the school. Command was nice and being on news round was really cool seeing myself in a proper thing on TV was really cool and also have all those friends that I've made. I wouldn't have made if I hadn't done thanks to Charlie Linford forgiving us. An eleven year olds perspective on ringing bells next. We have a short section way. Your questions are answered by an expert in the world of Bell ringing today. David Richards the technical coordinator for the National Twelve Bell contest for the Taylor. Trophy provides the onces. David Richards is my resident expert today. His work as an audio engineer and has run the technical team for the National Twelve Bell Com tests since two thousand fifteen. Today's the first question I wanted to ask you. Why would anybody want to record bells really interesting question and I think there are really two answers to that? One of those is that you might want to record bells for striking competition for example that's where my involvement with the national twelve bell contestants and that's one type recording another type is more sort of listening for ambience and to remember a particular occasion and that would be more kind of a- bells on Sunday type recording for people to listen to enjoy listening to and I. My view is a quite different styles recording Way while I think if you'll recording for striking competition it's all about a very detailed very analytical very dry if you like you want the precision of what's being produced in the BELFRY and it almost relates back to these sort of nineteen sixties wall of sound argument that my job is to take a recording from a physical point of space and then replayed is exactly as I can to the judges in listening chamber somewhere else whereas if you want to record something to sound nicer natural in light and alive actually you probably don't want the same level of critical detailed. You probably want to bit more of the ambiance. You want a bit more space around the bells. You want to almost feel like you're immersed in the listing environment that you typically hear the bells in I say how do you record it for the twelve? Welcome test so that we'd record the bells fill. The twelve contest is to place a microphone in the Belchamber that that is the room which physically contains the bells often cooled belfry. But just for any avoidance of doubt. It's the physical room with bells. And what we try to do is get the microphone sufficiently high above the bells. You'll not recording any one in particular you can imagine if if the microphone was very low to the bells than you'd pick up one close to more than the others said. We tried to get plenty of height above the battles but more less no interference with with direct sound between the bells and the Mike Friends. So we will. We're aiming for really direct path for sound travel from the bells to recording Mike. Fine as commented the problem with this Result in the same vein very dry. That's because belfries don't tend to have a huge amount of reverberation or at least the direct sound from the bells tends to dominate quite significantly. But what we found is it's a very consistent. Way of recording bell's not very important in a competition setting that we know that more or less any church or to other tower in the country will be able to turn up a news. This tried and tested procedure to get a clear sound which is suitable for judging a competition and you mentioned reverberation. Is that sort of like an echoey type of thing absolutely. I'm the one thing about church bells as that. They all so loud that there there is many different phumzile reverberation which are important to the overall sound banks when you go outside the church. You'll find that it's not only the sound from within the tower and then reverberation within the tower. It's also how the sound tracks with local buildings and in particular reflecting off surrounding buildings and trees and other structures is what I feel makes up. There will sound makeup of church tower. It's not just the direct sounds. It's how the sound bounces around and finally arrives at you as the listener Say It's interesting to the these are things you you don't as a layperson think about but it's interesting to stop maybe being aware them absolutely and I don't know whether you have to balance the amount of time in training it takes to become a good recording engineer but there are specialist courses run by universities in how to record sound and this is very much key part of it. It's really considering. What the sound sources but also considering how people would normally listen to it. And you're making sure the sound recorded sounds more or less as people expect. University of Surrey. Bones are very famous. Tom Mice to cool with this is the main focus. It's all about. How would you take sound being produced usually Life Circumstance? Oh concerts and performances. How do you turn that into a recording? Which is truthful and sounds like the original to a listener..
