London Collections: Christopher Raeburn Soundtrack26/06/2012
Christopher Raeburn: "The wonderfully talented Sound Wizard, Toot!, has done all of our sound for the last shows and films, and worked on everything for the Spring/Summer 2013 show."
Who was the DJ or who chose the music?
That's me, Toot! / Dom Harwood.
Which specific tracks were played?
As always with Christopher's shows, I composed a bespoke soundtrack comprised of sounds recorded at Chris's studio - buttons, zips, fabric flapping around etc, and sounds specifically linked to this collection, and its video - owl hoots, beak clicks etc.
Which opened the show?
As people entered the space we played a soundscape of owl sounds and rain to bring people into the world of the label and collection as well as have a little poke at the 'Summer' we've been having.
Which closed it/which was used for finale?
We kept the composed soundtrack running and effect it live (filter, reverb, delay) to create a backing which is linked to what's happening out on the catwalk.
Who are you, Toot!
I live in London and make music, sounds and installations. I like to fuse modern electronic sounds with compositional techniques from classical music.
