1. Going Native: Part 1


    from Crane.tv / Added

    In the first of a two part series following the native oyster from sea bed to plate, we visit West Mersea Oysters, supplier to London's finest eateries. See more videos on Crane.tv: http://crane.tv Mike Dawson has been farming oysters in West Mersea on the Essex coast for over two decades. In that time he has seen demand, especially for the revered Colchester Native oyster, a smaller sweeter cousin to the rock, grow exponentially as customers in restaurants in London, and across Europe, clamour for a taste of this mineral-rich foodstuff. West Mersea Oysters produce close to one million oysters in all per year, and on a very, very cold day in December, we went out with Mike on his boat the Hazel Anne. How does Mike like to eat his? "With a nice cup of tea", he told us. In part two, we follow Mike's native oysters to Bibendum restaurant in London, where they are transformed into a piping-hot, herb-rich Oyster Rockefeller dish.

            • Consider the Oyster

              Consider the Oyster is a document of place, culture, and a window into oyster farming in West Marin. It is based off of three basic facts: 1. Oysters reflect the place in which they are made. This recording documents the process of farming oysters with field recordings and two channel video. 2. Oysters are equally, a grounded and celestial food: flavored by the tides, created by the rotation of the sun and moon. They put us in touch with our own position in relation to movement of our planet. Two drones are sounded to represent the sun and the moon, proportional to their gravitational pull on the tidal waters. 3. Oysters are bivalves, and so is a pump organ. I performed on pump organ throughout the piece as a musical analogue for our beloved oyster. The Event: In May of 2014, participants arrived to Headlands Center for the Arts for a circuit of edible experiences including a sonic investigation into the process of oyster cultivation, synchronized group shucking, and considered consumption of our favored bivalve. Culminating with a meal of oyster stew in the Mess Hall, participants should come with hungry minds and bellies and can expect to be wholly satiated.
