No pest control required! Over the weekend, Huw Bunford from Super Furry Animals explored and recorded everyday sounds in the Whitworth for a commissioned soundscape. He will be coming back to Manchester to perform his sound piece on 2 October for Krysko & Kashiwagi…In The Mix, part of Manchester Weekender.
When I met up with him in London to discuss the commission, he showed me a collection of cassette tapes with found sounds from his travels. Instead of taking pictures, he records sounds. I even spotted a tape from Tokyu Hands in Shibuya, Tokyo– the most amazing DIY department store.
