Had an amazing time over the long weekend field recording for an upcoming project with Tom baker. We experienced the skinning and butchering of a deer, not as gruesome as it sounds and actually made for some pretty amazing field recordings!!
As a note, this animal was respected and we used as much of it as we humanly could, i generally don’t feel the need to watch the butchering of animals, but as a non- vegetarian i believe it is important to understand the process that takes place before the cling wrapped versions end up in our supermarkets and frying pans. It was really an eyeopening experience and has made me think twice about the amount of meat products i consume.
We then took to a sheering shed, that i would have to say is a sound artists dream building…
looking forward to getting in the sounds and making some new installation and and live works.
