When a Sonic Artist performs a craniotomy…

…a cabbage is involved.

As the unique quality of binaural microphone technology captures the subtle aspects of sound, a cabbage-as-head can potentially capture the vibrations and internal sounds of the ‘head’ being cut open and operated on (note the health and safety goggles). Paul drilled holes into the sides of the cabbage and placed the binaural microphones into the ‘earholes’:

Our rudimentary cabbage craniotomy will provide a bank of surgery sounds that Paul can manipulate, based on the script development the team has done to date. This will also be adjusted based on the expert guidance we receive from Mr RS McConnell, my neurosurgeon and member of the biomedical advisory team.

This support and development has been made possible by a Public Engagement Small Arts Award from The Wellcome Trust.
