I’m so excited about this new project with composer Catherine Kontz. It’s been brewing for a few years, and we are extra-pleased to be funded by the PRSF Women Make Music award, and supported by Tête à Tête – launching as part of their Opera Festival 2018.
The project is an audio dream guiding you along the lost River Fleet, from its source on Hampstead Heath to where it meets the Thames at Blackfriars. There’s text (both spoken and sung), binaural recording, found sound and music, as well as small performative actions that the listener can choose to take part in whilst they walk the route.
Print artist Rowanne Anderson (Rowan Tree Print) is making us a rather beautiful map to help people find their way and show them where the listening points are.
Lots more info lives over on Catherine’s site, which is also where you’ll find the album and map to download from July 27.
