Being asked to produce a commission for an art festival in my home was such a great oppourtunity, as well as the chance to work with Dr Ed Wright, a consumate professional of audio. It was great fun getting to collaborating when our approach and understanding of working with sound came from such different places. The lo-fi-but-also-high-tech equipment that was built was a real challenge. Relying completely on hardware and software that was designed by Ed & myself especially for this project; a real result on the budget and time.
Over the weekend we had so much amazing feedback, and every person who stopped for a chat gave a different spin on the work. Even those who thought we were some evil windmill makers who needed to be stopped were fascinating to talk to. We made the work to prompt questions about the existance of the windfarm off the North Wales coast, and the response really made us feel that we achieved what we set out.
Many thanks to Marc, Christine & all the team. It was a joy!
The BBC Radio wales did a great piece about the work which can be found in the embedded soundcloud below.
