Recording sound at the lab

We have now completed the first round of sound recording at Imperial College London, interviewing the lab members about their work and doing a tour of the lab itself to record some of the familiar and characteristic sounds. 

Phil Noakes came along to sound record and I had fun getting scientists to describe their work and do some drawings of their impressions of the microbiological process. I fondly hope that the animation workshop we did previously had loosened them up to express themselves with images as well as words, but (I suspect) the reality is that hey are all so engaged, passionate and articulate about their research that they were quite happy to use coloured pens to draw their ideas.
