A Man Called Baker.

Posted: May 8, 2014 in Music and Visual Media.

Site Specific Sound Installations.

This installation’s aim was to try and re-create the life that would have been lived around the river bridge in Newport’s early days. By sitting in the chair and wearing headphones you become aware of a nauseous feeling this helps with disorientating the participant before asking them to let the track play and take their imagination. The track consists of industrial noises and machinery with some basic reverb and delay effects. Applying hard panning to some horse and cart sounds allowed the listeners aural dimensions to be expanded and gave a life like experience in terms of looking around at a modern world but through audio travelling back in time.

A Man Called Baker came from a story of a very lucky young boy who escaped with his life after a falling sleeper killed a dozen working men. See link below
