For the soundscape I wanted to use metal material as to me this represents industrial activity and farm machinery that is necessary but can become noise and an intrusive undertone in a tranquil natural environment. I wanted to try and hint at the ringing that you get in your head when you're emotionally saturated, stressed or exhausted through this metaphor of the negative relationship between industrial machines and nature.
I recorded sounds of whisks, wine glasses and saucepans in the sound studio with Peter Williams and mashed up the different samples to acquire an ongoing drone sound. I also combined these with a few samples that I had from a previous environmental project from last year and changed them so that they suited to this purpose. The result was quite profound and disturbing.
