Podcast: Sound Walking in Suburbia – perception, patterns & delight
The resulting Sound Walk, ‘UP BARLEY MOUNT, Exeter, November 2020’:
In autumn 2020 Maketank invited me to make a piece on the Hammond organ that is resident in its building on Paris Street, Exeter. Olya and Brian wondered what the organ might have to say during this time of locked down arts and culture, alone in the former sofa showroom in central Exeter. Here is the piece, Maketank, Paris Street, 15th December 2020.
Podcast: The Music of Exeter and Kyoto
The music of Exeter and Kyoto podcast was commissioned by Art Work Exeter for their Resilience project. I invited composer Makoto Nomura and curator Mari Satomura to compose a Sound Walk in their Kyoto neighbourhood. We compare our experiences of being musicians during COVID, and we share our listening practice and Sound Walks we have made. Please enjoy Makoto Nomura and Mari Satomura’s Kyoto Sound Walk, below – there’s a lovely, hand-drawn map followed by their sound descriptions. The podcast also refers to sounds I found on the local rugby pitch while making my Sound Walk ‘PEOPLE to PEOPLE’, so I’ve added it below, together with a recording of the musical rugby posts.
