Anwin captured the time on a lone field recorder:
‘The Quarry is a place of contrast moving from unrivalled natural tranquility to being busy and bustling with human activity.’
Howse used ink, graphite and pens:
‘Pigeons cooed…dogs came and went, enjoying the cool quarry pool, stones made satisfying melodious sounds as they fell, voices approached and faded. The microphone picked up the rich acoustic of birdsong surrounded by rock, washes of indigo ink on paper echoed splashes in the water.'
Anwin then worked with the field recording; subtly manipulating the sounds and including delicate new instrumentation to compliment and enhance what was heard.
The result is a vivid representation in the from of a drawing by Howse with an accompanying audio composition which can be listened to now at the AONB Tamar Valley centre, Gunnislake or via Arlo Anwin's website HERE
