So I guess that’s step one of a functioning recording device for wild animals! The thingy that you see moving in this longer than necessary video is a GPS controlled attach/release system designed by mister Simon Cacheux. Good work mate, let’s hope we can find the recorder back when it’s abandoned in the middle of the woods ! More soon about what it is exactly that I am doing with it.
Thank you Richard Whitelaw (Sound and Music), Hayley Skipper (Forest Art Works), Dawn Scarfe and everyone who came to listen last night at Oto project space. It was cold outside (and inside) and heart warming inside (and outside) to share ideas and outcomes of the Embedded Residency with you.
And that’s what the attach/release system of my wild animal harness looks like, as engineered by colleague and friend Simon Cacheux. As part of my idea of collaborating with wild animals to record forests and cities in from a new perspective, we’re designing a system that will as comfortable and safe as possible for our sonic exploration. What you see is a GPS controlled lock that will let the harness fall on the ground at any time, anywhere. More soon ! On thursday, for those who can make it !
