Created using the sounds of a tree, foxglove explores perspective, and degrees of extrinsicity versus abstract material representative of processes pertinent to the source material. Much impetus for the focus on perspective in this piece arises out of the recording process. Recording manipulations of a tree (specifically the trunk, root, leaves, internal sap and flesh, and dirt in which it is potted), proved to be a technical challenge, with much of the noises made being incredibly quiet. This necessitated a centimetre close X/Y pair of cardioid microphones which, due to their proximity effect, resulted in an exaggerated sense of magnitude and scale imposed on these otherwise small sources.
