Today was the day of FOG… It was also a day of very productive meetings with various potential partners and local arts professionals, to try and construct a viable project that can attract public funding. We know that we have a good piece of work here, but we need to go that extra mile to show public benefit in the current funding climate.

On the way to the swimming pool at the end of the day we stopped off at Bonhoga gallery to see their current exhibition Unearthed by Berenice Carrington and then set off to record the sound of wind blowing through the trees at possibly the only (small) wood on the entire island, just further on down the lane from Bonhoga.

The following sound came to me on the way back to the car when I heard a farm building door rattling in the wind, accompanied by sheep and birds. I managed to grab about 4 minutes of it between the traffic. As always, please listen on a good pair of headphones to fully appreciate the binaural recording.
