10,000 Letters of Love

June 6, 2013

CLICK HERE FOR AMT259

Attention, Martin the Sound Fans!

Your favourite West Midlandese sound man has been very busy this year, and not with the invention of new compound cuss-words involving balls. No. He’s been paper-cutting, green-screening and back-projecting to make the video to his song 10,000 Letters of Love, and the finished product is finally here:

Wow, right? Surely the best papercut video about London sewerage pioneer Joseph Bazalgette you’ll see all year.

If you’re interested in how he made the video, click here; and if you liked the song and want to buy it plus ten more, click here to purchase his beautiful album The City of Gold and Lead, under Martin’s musical alter ego The Sound of the Ladies.

The Sound Man of Gold and Lead

November 26, 2012

Martin displays his wares


When Martin the Sound Man is not enabling us to make sounds, he makes sounds of his own under his musical alter ego The Sound of the Ladies. For his brand-new album The City of Gold and Lead, he not only made the sounds, but also the pop-up CD sleeve you see in the photo above, which is almost as pretty as the music within.

You can buy the album in CD or MP3 form from HERE, and you’ll make an old sound man very happy if you do.

Martin, moonlighting?

February 6, 2012

Here’s something that really freaked us out, from Luke:

When did Martin the Sound Man get the time to be in an Australian cider commercial?

I must say Martin looks very fetching in a dress.

UNCANNY. Even Martin watched and wondered how they managed to steal his face without him noticing.

The real Martin the Sound Man, angry and confused.

Martin the Telly Man

July 6, 2011

** Click here for Episode 181 **

If you’ve ever wondered what Martin the Sound Man does in his day job of “physicist”, take a look at this video here, and try not to get as much of a shock as Krish did:

Looking at the technology section on the BBC website, I clicked on the video link called ‘data visualisation’, being a 3D visualiser myself.

I paid half attention to the video, just seeing a chap being interviewed by a journalist, and saw the name Martin come up. I recognised the voice, it was the Sound Man. I saw the hairy scarf wrapped round his neck and that confirmed it for me. It’s well known to AMT listeners Martin is a hairy man.

How often does he appear on TV? Will he knock Brian Cox off his mantle by appearing on more TV shows?

I thought he did very well. I would be glad to see more TV appearances from Martin.

Wouldn’t we all! We’re still waiting to hear back from the casting director of BBC3’s Help! Everyone Keeps Mistaking Me For a Bear, but if any of the rest of you want to employ Martin on the TV networks that you run, do get in touch. Surely Professor Cox must be feeling a bit weary of sitting on the edge of cliffs explaining about atoms by now.
