After visiting the Tannery (and with me now wearing The Coat) we arrived at Capel Y Graig with less time than we hoped. Setting up the PA, mics and recording devices always takes longer than I anticipate…we only had time for one take!
On Saturday Lou Laurens and I will be heading up to visit the Tannery in Machynlleth to explore the acoustics of the space, record a song or two and then bring ‘The Coat’ back to the chapel and record a process of ‘Consider the lilies’ there.
The idea is to record layers of sound in a Lucier style, activating the wonderful acoustics, creating an extraordinary sonic experience. The recordings will then be released through the web building in complexity through the week of the 27th Feb – 3rd March.
