Acorn Massive – update

Kris interviewing Paul about the Chickens he looks after.  Outside on the farm.

Just before Covid-19 I was working on an audio tour in collaboration with Acorn Massive, an audio ensemble for people with learning difficulties based at Acorn Farm. Our collaboration has been supported by Heart of Glass and Kris Gjerstad.

The tour will eventually be presented as a an on-site interactive sound piece capturing life on the farm.  The piece will incorporate spoken word, quirky vocal samples, field recordings and lively musical jams.  

Unfortunately our plans have been delayed due to Covid-19.  Nevertheless we are currently working with a graphic designer to produce an online version – which will be premiered later in the year!

In the meantime, here are a few of our experimental sound jams:

It’s Smokey Joe

Working with Acorn Massive has been a very enjoyable experience, and has certainly made me think about the relationships we have with each other and our interconnections with nature.
