"making do" is KATE CARR's series of monthly experiments involving limited numbers of everyday objects. Vol. 1 collects the first and fourth installments (October 2021 and April 2022) onto a single cassette.

Plastic cogs sigh and sputter, wet whistles echo through hollow logs, steel wool sings against zither strings, bits and bobs boomerang back and forth as KATE CARR constructs brilliantly playful sculptures of sound from the squish and squawk of the world of things.

Wibble and wobble on the fine line between field recording and foley work. Lend an ear to the imperturbable scritchings and scratchings of household relics patiently reimagined.
