My name is Tom Lyne and I am a sound designer, music producer, and bassist. I graduated with an MSc in Sound Design from Edinburgh’s Napier University in July 2020.

My latest Sound Design work is a project called ‘Surrounded by Midlothian’ and features ambisonic field recordings, along with other recoding methods, to
create immersive environmental soundscapes. The sound banks are available for download here on my website along with videos and streaming links.

Previously I was the supervising sound editor and composer for the full length documentary film In The Light by director/producer Susan Kemp. Due to the Covid pandemic, the film didn’t receive proper viewing but here is a link to the film –

Surrounded by Midlothian

Surrounded by Midlothian is an exciting new sound design collection that includes recordings, music and videos. This work is built around ambisonic field recordings and experimental recording rechniques made in the countryside of Midlothian, Scotland. The Winter collection is now available with 4 volumes of field recordings to listen to and download for free. There are also videos from each volume to show how and where the recordings were made. Go to the Surrounded by Midlothian page. There will be music released in September 2021 that will accompany the winter collection. Also, the spring collection is currently in production.


The Surrounded by Midlothian backgrounds and sound effects will be edited and adapted to be re-used as instruments, textures, and blueprints for orchestrations and arrangements, inspiring a series of new compositions. You can check out this approach to composition in the videos below from my recent Sonables collection. More about the music here.


These videos feature compositions that use field recordings to generate the underlying form and texture. The music is from a collection of music called Sonables available on Bandcamp.
