Wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson travels to Australia to meet Alan Lamb, who has been working on a project to record the noises made by wires as they are vibrated by the wind and weather. Following his early fascination from pressing his ear against telegraph poles, the artist, biomedical research scientist and composer has worked with abandoned wires to install new structures to produce and record music from.
