Listening and Found Sounds: Part 1 - Exploring Place

9 June 2018


Venue: Starting at Greenwich Foot Tunnel entrance, North side

Organiser: Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell & Hannah White)

Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell & Hannah White) are sound makers, explorers, performers, investigators and inventors. We create site-specific improvised performances, sonic topographies of ritual, assemblage, electro-acoustic soundscapes, field recordings, lo-fi electronics, vocal loops and sound poetry. Our performances are sound journeys, inspired by the sites we navigate, creating sound devices from found objects to explore our memory of place and experience of the land. We are also members of Breathing Space collective, making site-specific sound works in non-traditional spaces. We are currently studying to become Deep Listening practitioners and are both experienced workshop facilitators.

Starting at the Greenwich foot tunnel this sound walk will take you along the Thames, on a listening journey to open your ears to the acoustic environment of the area. We will perform ‘listening scores’ along the way, and develop our ‘land listening’ by collecting objects and ephemera to use to evoke a sense of place in sound making. Join us for Part 2 of the workshop ‘Making Sound’ on Sunday 10th June. Wear sensible footwear and bring a pair of rubber gloves and a bag to carry your findings.
