Blacksmith Video
All craft practices have their own unique soundscape - sounds derived from the transformation of raw materials into crafted objects through the use of tools and machines. I became aware that blacksmithing is accompanied by the regular rhythms of the workshop: the hammer striking the anvil provides the backbone, interrupted by a plethora of less regular tasks that mimic short solo musical improvisations - all taking place over the background noise of the furnace. In order to capture the ambiance of the blacksmiths workshop I produced this video and composed the soundtrack. The music relies solely on sounds recorded at Tom Fell’s workshop of the processes he employs. Having been manipulated in a digital audio workstation, they create a soundtrack that together with the video is the embodiment of the blacksmith’s working environment. A DVD will be included within the associated photobook due to be published and available from the site shop in 2018.
