This film is one outcome of a collaborative project focusing on the acoustic environment of one of the two remaining farms, located at the end of Runway B of Japan’s Narita airport, owned and worked by the Shimamura family. The intensities of aircraft sounds in this space relate a story that is globally familiar, about the relationship of airports and aircraft activity to economic and population growth, to the desire for travel and to the mechanics and materials of aircraft design. It is also a local story about this site, where Japanese national and commercial interests, centred on the construction and operation of an international airport, have repeatedly been opposed by the local farming community of Sanrizuka. The film Air Pressure used sound recordings, on-site and archive film, to represent the sonic experiences of living and working on this farm, which is surrounded by the airport’s infrastructure and constantly monitored by surveillance and sound measuring mechanisms
