Drumming feathers

As per this post and in anticipation of the forthcoming Audiograft 2012 festival, during each day in February 2011, a recording created during Audiograft 2011 will be played here as a Sound Diary entry. The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

Today’s sound was recorded during the Concept as Score concert at the Holywell Music Room, and features the sound of Patrick Farmer realising “For a Drummer, Fluxversion 2″ by George Brecht, in which a pillow filled with feathers is cut open and drummed so that its contents leak. As well as the rhythmic sound of drumming on a feather pillow, this recording contains the sounds of coughs, the incidental sounds of the drumsticks clicking together, and the beep of a camera somewhere in the audience.
