Originally, my plan was to interview Les at the Underground in the University of Technology Sydney, however, I felt that his connection wasn’t as strong to the Underground as it was for the holiday house where we spent most of our time at.
The difficulty in recording, for this connection to place was the fact that the holiday house was in Port Macquarie. With the stories that Les told, it is difficult to have ambient sounds in the background. The stories Les has told, really developed his character and I feel that any ambience would take the character development away from the story.
However, in one of the stories, Les mentions a particular song that will always connect him to this house. This song in the background adds significance to the story, and I believe further develops Les’ character.
