Patrick Farmer releases audiobook

Sound artist Patrick Farmer releases Wild Horses Think Of Nothing Else The Sea on cassette.

The Set Ensemble member and rambling sound artist Patrick Farmer is set to release his 2014 publication Wild Horses Think Of Nothing Else The Sea as an audiobook. Written during a six week walk across the Welsh coast, Wild Horses was originally published by Saru and Farmer's own imprint Compost And Height, which he runs with Sarah Hughes.

The double cassette tape will be released by Ben Owen's Windsmeasure imprint in April. Readers include Antoine Beuger, Jeph Jerman, Bruno Guastalla, Sally Ann Mcintyre, Holly Pester, Daniela Cascella and Michael Pisaro. Designed and printed by Owen, it features a letterpress inner and outer sleeve. There is also a limited edition version available that includes a page from Farmer's original handwritten text.
