Array a sound sculpture and installation commissioned by the B-Side Arts and Media Festival part of the ‘Maritime Mix’, 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
Visit the Array Blog for more information and documentation of the residency and installation process, and listen to the sounds from the piece below.
Array 1 (scarred by storm-built by man) – Influenced by visiting, drawing, photographing and sound recording in the Verne High Angle Battery of the Isle of Portland. The title is taken from a text ‘cut up’ created during field trips to Dorset as part of the residency for the b-side festival.
Array 2 (Who walked here) – Sounds taken from visits to Nothe fort and hill create a conversation of codes blending natural and man-made modes of communication. The title is taken from a dedication situated on a bench on Nothe Hill.
Array 3 (choking island -shining sea) – The view of Portland appearing and disappearing in sea mist and fog echo its mysterious naval history and architecture, as grey crag and carved cliff emerge from sparkling seas. The title of the piece is taken from a text/prose created whilst sitting on Chesil beach watching sea fog engulfing the isle of Portland during my final residency for the commission.
