If my work as an artist has any point at all, it is to encourage people to think differently about sound and its relationship to the world about them, and I try to keep this as a focus in the presentation of everything that I do. What is particularly gratifiying is when I also have the opportunity to do this as part of my creative process as I collaborate with others in developing the work.
Related to this is my work with the staff at Andrea Antoniou’s who have been collating a list of sounds that they and their customers think sum up their hairdressing experience. Today, I went in to record them.
Over the course of this project, I have been regularly going into many of the shops along the High Street to keep them up to date with my progress and Tony, the proprietor of this shop has been especially enthusiastic, encouraging his staff to think about what they do from an acoustic perspective.
