One of the best parts of being a sound artist is that I get to listen to places and environments that I probably otherwise wouldn’t get access to. With Sense students we’ve been listening to some special sounds, either through the apparatus we’ve used or through the openness of groups who’ve let us into their worlds.
In Luton with students from Keech we recorded under water sounds using hydrophones; water is a much better conductor of sound than air and things sound amazing under water.
In Cornwall with members of GOT, a group from Sense was enthusiastically welcomed by members of the bell ringing group from Truro Cathedral, who let us have a go ringing the city bells.
