New for 2009: my acclaimed Buzzing! CD (a National Insect Week recommended resource) has been re-issued - with music! John Rayson, who plays music in my live Buzzing! shows, has created mini ‘sting’ versions of his pieces specially for the CD.
‘Your Buzzing! CD is wonderful. We put it on in the office when someone needs cheering up. ‘Dung fly’ is a particular favourite!’
Bumblebee Conservation Trust
The stings make a great addition to my Buzzing! CD, which contains 63 of my fun minibeast poems, and comes with a 16-page full-colour booklet (printed on recycled paper – see sample page below) with over 80 of my close-up garden minibeast photos.
My Buzzing! CD is an all-round local product. I photographed the minibeasts in my garden in York, wrote the poems here too and recorded them in York at Cube Media (with John Greatwood, the sound engineer for the band ‘Elliot Minor’, no less!) The 16-page booklet was printed in York, and John Rayson recorded his stings at Diminished Studios in York. Sound engineer Lee Hutchinson (see below) at BH Media in York inserted the stings into the Buzzing! CD, which was duplicated over in Bradford, just a hop skip and a jump away.

John Rayson has also recorded the full versions of his Buzzing! pieces, available on his ‘Arachnophobia’ CD. They are also available as sheet music for you to play yourself. (Find out more)
