Dartmoor sensing

Created in collaboration with Jocasta Lucas and Catherine Simmonds. This is a 3-dimensional soundfield piece in which listeners step ‘inside’ a space confined by four speakers.

Inside this confined space is a 4-channel sound environment capturing a journey by foot across Dartmoor accompanied by tones made from processed location recordings; on the outside there is a 4-channel sound environment of static, ‘hanging’ tones, location recordings and a poem constructed from edited interviews with wardens at Dartmoor prison. All sound is played at extremely low volume through miniature speakers placed in either end of 4 hanging tubes.supported by Aune Head Arts
