I spent today sawing and drilling and swearing at broken drill bits and I shall spend tonight editing audio and writing a script. Why? Because tomorrow I am setting up my work for Oxford Brookes’ Audiograft festival. Before I get right back onto tonight’s editing and varnishing, I wanted to share with you here the preview podcast which I produced a couple of weeks back. This hopefully gives some sense of the kinds of things you can see and hear at the festival, if you’re near Oxford during this week;

Audiograft-Preview by Sonic Art Research

I will be presenting a reworked version of my TEA MUSEUM, plus the new SONIC TUCK SHOP MUSEUM, complete with audio tourguide and fancy, updated graphics. Mark will also be accompanying me in this audio, for I am experimenting with different ways of creating narratives and working with recorded voices (more of this soon!) In the TEA MUSEUM there will be all the items which were last represented at Jelly’s afternoon TEA PARTY, plus a fancy item-guide which will feature illustrations such as this image of the knitted teabag;

this image of the Swan Teasmade manual;

my treasured tea-themed glass buttons;

(there they are, sewn onto a Duttons For Buttons paper bag, for safe-keeping…)

and the tea-coloured yarn I dyed using black walnuts.

THE SONIC TUCK SHOP MUSEUM will give an explanation and history to the evolving ideas of SONIC TUCK which began with my POPWORKS video a few years ago, and which continues still via my obsession with the sounds of different foodstuffs.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and that you get to enjoy some nice warming teas and sonic tuck of your own.

More soon.
