I’ve just returned from a trip to São Miguel island in the Azores where I devised and led a soundwalk as part of Invisible Places 2017. I worked with Annie Mahtani to create the walk under the SOUNDkitchen banner. We’ve documented the walk on the SOUNDkitchen website so if you’d like to read more click here.

This trip forms part of an ongoing research and development project and I also spent several days making field recordings around the island. I’ll be posting more about my work on the island soon but in the meantime why not enjoy this edited mix of sounds encountered on our SOUNDwalk in Ponta Delgada:

Invisible Places 2017 R&D

I’m embarking on a period of research and development around my field recording and composition practice that has been funded by a Grants For the Arts award from Arts Council England supported using public funding by the National Lottery. The first stage of the project involves a trip to the beautiful Sao Miguel Island in the Azores to attend Invisible Places 2017. Working with Annie Mahtani, I’ll be devising and leading the SOUNDkitchen SOUNDwalk – Ponta Delgada at the symposium. I’ll also be spending a few days field recording around the island with a focus on ambisonic sound recordings.

I’ve set up a project page on my site here to document my work and will be posting updates on my progress on this blog in the category ‘IP 2017 R&D’.
