Performing in Walney

As part of world Dawn Chorus Day myself and the sound artist Linda O Keeffe created a day long workshop for attendees of the Sound Camp at South Walney Nature Reserve, organised by Octopus Collective.

In the evening we performed a new work generated by text performed by the attendees of the sound camp and collected objects.

After a brief introduction to acoustic ecology and listening methods each participant was given a listening meditation (meditation and composition). They brought this on their walks through the reserve. Later, we recorded their texts and a series of sound performances they created with materials they collected as part of the listening meditation and object collection. These were incorporated into a live coded and 3d graphic score performance. This performance was broadcast online and performed at the London sound camp.
