This commentary accompanies a portfolio of pieces which combine soundscape composition and record production methods with aspects of autoethnographic practice. This work constitutes embodied research into relations between everyday auditory experience, music production and reception, and selfhood. The commentary draws together the methods and practices from which the pieces have emerged - which range across field recording, sound collage, installation, audio-visual composition, and performative action - to present the project as a cohesive series of sonic autoethnographies. Recent theory and practice in sound and in autoethnography is considered in relation to the portfolio, which presents a personal listening culture through multiple and layered representations of self. Discussion of the pieces is used to propose generalisable insights in the related areas of personal listening, record production, and soundscape composition.
