About The Music 

 

Claudia approached a friend of hers, Gordon Clarke, about making some bed music for the show and what she got was a a unique combination of beats and animal noises that have become a hallmark for the show.  

Gordon Clarke is con_sol, a Kingston based electronic poet who tries and occasionally succeeds in blending improvised hypnotic beats with self indulgent stream of conscience poetry. He explains his thinking behind the music for The Animal Turn:

"For the Animal Turn, I thought I’d let the animals speak their own lyrics. In the theme you can hear cows, pigs, goats, rabbits, camels and more expressing themselves in their own unique ways. I wanted to highlight the sometimes surprising musicality and rhythm of animal vocalists by layering them over a melody and a beat. I think animals clearly have a lot to say. It’s just up to us to take the time to listen.”

You can find Gordon (con_sol) on Bandcamp.
