The walls of the barn are fascinating in themselves, and I wondered what they sounded like. Textural sounds can be created by gently touching the textures of the surface while holding the microphone close. The long length of the walls allow for continuous sound to be created by moving my hands flat along the wall, opening and closing them, creating pitched breath-like sounds. Pieces of dry straw found on the barn floor and used to trace the stones sounded like fire crackles, or the whirring of an old-fashioned film projector. A metallic tapping outside the barn provides a background pulse.
