Personally, I thought that this story was wonderful. I have a love for art and have been doing it since kindergarten and I feel as if I have a lot in common with this woman after listening to this sound report. Her German accent is thick and strong which to me, adds to the authenticity of the interview. It gives a feel for who she is and where she comes from.
The ambient sound is lovely, you can hear the artist clashing paint cans, a paint brush being skimmed and birds chirping. You feel as if you are in the garden. A piano is being played in the background, in fact, I believe it is the song “To Build A Home”.
Rhythmically it works very well and it all flows together and feels like it is in place. You achieve an understanding of her life through the woman speaking about moving to Australia and what art and her garden has done for her.
