ABOUT THIS ITEM
‘One Pig’ is the story of a single farm animal’s life, from birth to death and beyond. A poignant elegy to an anonymous animal’s life. The album is the final instalment of his ‘One Trilogy’ series of albums, each about one thing.
Here Herbert bases the music on field recordings taken during a single farm animal’s life, from birth to death, consumption and beyond. The result is an elegy to an otherwise anonymous farm animal’s life, a beautiful and compelling account which prompts questions and insight into the presence of an animal so commonly underestimated, under-appreciated and unacknowledged in our society.
