Strange Sounds in Strange Places

I led groups of people into the woods to create sound installations. We made the mysterious even more mysterious. Commisioned by the Abandon Normal Devices Festival.

Each team had a backpack of cable, sound recording equipment and a small amplifier. They scouted their sounds and locations and got to work. 

Strange Sounds in Strange Place #1
Sounds of a busy Manchester, UK motorway placed in a drainpipe.


Strange Sounds in Strange Place #2
Sounds of a bubbling steam placed overhead to evoke rivers of electricity.

Strange Sounds in Strange Place #3
Sounds of a clanging rusty metal springs placed up in a tree.
