Chris Watson, Jennifer Walshe, Matthew Herbert

Sara Mohr-Pietsch visits three very different composers: sound recordist Chris Watson, composer and performer Jennifer Walshe and electronic musician Matthew Herbert.

Sara Mohr-Pietsch visits the workspaces of three very different composers as part of the Composers' Rooms series.

In the acoustically rich Kielder Forest, Sara meets sound-recordist Chris Watson capturing birdsong with mobile microphones and considers the art of listening. Composer and performer Jennifer Walshe explains how she divides her composing time between her flat in London and house in Ireland, and how her work explores the everyday sounds and sights of her immediate environment. And Sara joins electronic musician and producer Matthew Herbert on the Kent coast in a state of flux between his office-like studio and a shambolic fishing hut.
