*20 copies limited release* Over two weeks in September 2022 Simon Whetham was invited to join Milena Farioli at OVNI, a creative space in Fribourg, Switzerland, to explore the sounds of various fermentations including red and white cabbage, green beans, ginger, courgette (a huge one donated to the project by the neighbouring florist), (non-lactose) kefir and mead. He recorded the whole process with various techniques and mics, also capturing some of the sounds from bustling Rue de Lausanne that OVNI faces onto. The results were presented as an installation that plays the sounds created by the fermentation process through speakers into the space, but also through the glass of the various jars used and also the plate glass window, as the project fermented inside the ‚jar‘ of OVNI, looked into by the passers-by each day.
