In April I was invited to be location sound recordist on an independent film project in rural Cumbria.  The upcoming film is Raven on the Jetty, directed by Erik Knudsen, founder of One Day Films.  The film explores the relationship of a boy and his parents as he encounters an unfamiliar world around him.  Working with Knudsen and the rest of the crew and cast was an inspiring and unforgettable experience.  The crew included Mark Duggan (Assistant Director & Cinematography),  Janet Knudsen (Production Manager) Taddeus Walsh (Assistant Art Director), Madeleine Millar (Art Director), Alex Gilbert (Production Assistant), Tara Knudsen (Production Assistant), and Richard Mulhearn (still photography).  The cast included Connor O’Hara, Robert O’Hara, Helen Teasdale, Anne Fraser and Anne Lees. Each cast member gave wonderful performances and Connor, who played the main character Thomas, inspired us all with his endurance and acting abilities at the young age of eleven.  I am honored to be part of the project and truly enjoyed recording elements of the sonic environment of rural Cumbria.  I’ll post some sounds here soon.    Now I look forward to assisting my Kinokophone colleague, Michael Cacioppo Belantara on the post production sound design.

Currently I’m working on a Kinokophonography radio show retrospective, commissioned by Octopus Collective as part of the FONair micro-commissions programme.  

It’s been lovely to speak with people who have been submitting to the event over the years from all around the world…hearing their voices, their stories and ideas about field recording.  It is touching to imagine all of these people brought into my life through their recordings…and the connections that continue to grow. 
The clip below is just a rough edit - a short excerpt from an interview with Coryn Smethurst made as part of the show.  I first met Coryn through organizing Kinokophonography.  In addition to submitting some intriguing recordings every session, he very kindly brings his amazing speaker system for everyone to listen through.  
We spoke from across the ocean over Skype and while the connection might not be so clear, Coryn’s enthusiasm for recording and the beauty of sound is.

sweet beautiful soul 
imaginative and dreaming
i was so blessed to know
my heart aches you are gone
but your spirit it flows
in harmony with the universe
glowing a bright light
showing us the way home.
we love you

where is my house with a record player room?
wooden floors and walls lined with shelves of books
and stories of our lives
woven carpet on the floor
covered in morning light from tall windows
looking out into trees
i am lying there
with the sun 
listening in peaceful love with the music
records all around me
as i play them one by one
watching shadows of leaves
blowing in the wind
