Making a noise at Thwaite Mill

I've just recently started leading another art project. This time I'm working with the adult group from Pyramid of Arts. The BBC have very kindly leant us some sound recording equipment. We've used this to record some sounds and we're going to splice them together into something musical.

We spent the first few weeks of the project exploring sound. Making it, listening to it, drawing it and recording it. We've just got back from a sound recording trip to Thwaite Mill. We recorded a huge array of sounds made by the mill and pretty much anything else we could find that made sounds.

So, now we've got all our sounds, we just need to put them together into something musical. The difficult part is not going to be finding good sounds, it's going to be choosing the best ones from the hundreds we've got.
