Opening event to Sound Walk September, hosted on our Walk Listen Create sister site.

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.

Jeremy Evans and Andy Fell have worked together to create “Slow Radio” – their Arctic Journey to Greenland, narrated by Horatio Clare was a hugely popular broadcast from last Christmas on the BBC’s Radio 3. Later this month the three of them will be travelling to the Faroe Islands to record for this year’s BBC Christmas “Slow Radio” adventure.

John Beauchamp seeks out the Unseen hidden histories of Warsaw, reimagining places which were wiped off the map when the city was under Soviet control, by using author narration, sound design (imagined soundscapes from the places which are mentioned), personal narratives, archival sounds, and experiencing all of the above thanks to geolocation, through Josh Kopeček‘s app Echoes.

Martin Eccles is a sound artist and poet who explores time and distance through solitary walking. In unusual locations he works with repetition and randomness (inspired by the works of John Cage), recreating sounds as imaginary places in multi-channel sound installations and poetry, and also presenting the material for a variety of radio shows.

Horatio Clare in our guest for the Café on Tuesday 1 September.
