100 meters ( a gift )


‘100 meters..’ allows the listener to hear further than they can see.
Like an aural telescope, recordings made by the artist on journeys between the four venues involved in ”the animal gaze’ are played as if your range of hearing was constantly expanding, letting the audience build a sonic picture of routes through Plymouth.

Drawing on the listening practices of both animal predators and prey, ‘100 meters…’ frames these sounds with text inspired by the legacy of journeys in blues songs.

Commissioned by Groundworks South West as part of ‘Animal Gaze’.
the walks can be downloaded from here, each is designed to be listened to outside the venue in the filename.
