The Walker in the Landscape
The Walker in the Landscape is a forthcoming 9 part sound collage and re-interpretation of Caitlin Kiely's project that uses personification to bring a landscape to life, exploring the dynamic between a walker and the life in which they walk on.
The text and talks with Caitlin inspired me to conduct my own sonic research into landscapes that had shifted over time through human intervention, culminating in a 3 day trip to Wales where I explored abandoned slate quarries in the mountains, interacting with them via field recordings, improvisations and film photography.
These materials were used as the basis for a sound work that followed Caitlins articulate script, seeking to transport the listener to the psycho-spatial entanglement unravelling between the pair.
The final project will be released to cassette, designed by Caitlin Kiely, in 2024
