Chris Watson is one of the world’s leading recorders of wildlife and natural phenomena, producing sound installations and recordings for film, television and radio. He works with David Attenburgh, his recordings featured in hit film The Constant Gardener and he also contributed recordings to the new Sigur Ros movie, Heima, which premiered at the Electric Proms in London in 2007. He's won several high-profile awards for his work, which he says, “puts a microphone where you can’t put your ears”.

Fresh off the plane from the North Pole, where he was working on the BBC's Frozen Planet (to be broadcast in 2011), Chris came to Port Eliot in early May to record for a unique new sound installation – 'Sound into Light' – which he'll be presenting in the Round Room at the festival this July.
