Touch Radio 49 features Chris Watson’s Journey to the South as member of the film team for the forthcoming David Attenborough series “The Frozen Planet” (BBC, 2011). When it comes to nature sound recordings Chris Watson’s work is unequalled: the sound quality is superb and the variety of locations he had visited is unrivalled. In this interview for line-up magazine, he provides insight into his technical equipment, working methods and experiences during the recordings in Antarctica. But most entertaining is listening to himself in the touch radio episode where he speaks about the several places that he recorded and what impressions those places left in him. Only the underwater sounds of squeaking ice floes rubbing into each other is worth listening to this 50 minutes of recordings from the remotest locations imaginable.
