In this interdisciplinary, expansive research project I use embodied fieldwork comprising of deep listening, walks and field recordings. Heavily inspired by Wardie Bay Beach in North Edinburgh, predicted to be underwater by 2050, I am working with a land that has a time limit - a drowning beach. This project is ever-evolving to encompass multiple works.

SINGING TO THE SEAWEED

2021 (above)

 

A collection of responses to a collaged score (pictured) created for and with a drowning beach. Invited artists have made these sound works as intuitive reactions, reimagining an eerie and unpredictable landscape. The score, created by Joanne Matthews is a visualisation of the original sound work (track 3) which was created after a deep listening session in sea haar and site-responsive singing on a harbour wall.

Released May 19, 2021. Featuring sound works by, Nicholas Escobar, Ewan Pearce and Ezra Berrnico, Joanne Matthews and Joe Coghill
