About

For our fifth episode of the Fermynwoods Podcast, we focus on our Alternative Provision programme with students from The CE Academy. Artist and musician Rebecca Lee has created her sound piece You Can Hear The Wind entirely from recordings made by students.

For her workshops during the 2018-2019 academic year, Rebecca brought a variety of microphones, including those that could pick up the vibrations of our rural metal fences and those that could be lowered into nearby streams or withstand an onslaught of condiments. Students first experimented with creating these strange noises, then used software to loop and layer the noises into music.

When turning these recordings into a cohesive sound work, Rebecca’s main concern was to represent the young people in a way that allowed them to speak for themselves, without dressing it up or down. She used only their recordings as source material and edited them together with the same DJ mixing software they used. The result is a sound piece which represents the experience of one of our workshops, complete with imperfect recording technique, gleeful creative experimentation, swearing, and the peaceful environment surrounding Sudborough Green Lodge.
