I spent ten days in June learning about sound recording in the field with the legendary sound recordist Chris Watson (of the Dadaist group Cabaret Voltaire, a zillion wonderful BBC productions and nature docs with David Attenborough, plus so much more). Artists Jez Riley French and Finnbogi Peterssun were also advising our team. I had the time of my life, learned so much about expensive microphones that I’ll probably never be able to afford but now have a wish list of, and am in love with the wilds of Iceland. This might be my favourite recording I made – – – it involves my head being pecked by a swarm of attacking birds! That was damn scary.
