Time and Tide: (2008), (2010), (2012) Marcus Leadley is an artist whose work explores the sound of everyday places. One of his objectives is to encourage people to listen in a more focussed way to the world around them and gain a deeper appreciation of the richness of the acoustic environment. This is his fourth Whitstable Biennale. Previous installations have been structured around the sounds of the shoreline (2008), the harbour and foreshore (2010) and on the Hidden Sounds of Whitstable (2012). This year he turns his focus towards the passing of time. Time and Tide is a triptych based on his field recording archives from previous events. running time: 60min. :: more
imminent at every window (2013) Joe Stevens :: This album is made up of location recordings that I captured during my development for film soundtracks I created last year. The films were constructed from a GPS recorded walk on Portland and the location recordings were captured at various points along this walk. These location recordings were substantially processed to make the resulting soundtracks to match the visuals. The resulting soundtracks were released on the Electronic Musik net label (North West 6 to Gale 8 (Em194) – https://archive.org/details/Northwest6ToGale8em194.
However I kept coming back to the original location recordings of the wind wiping around Portland Harbour and have mixed them together, keeping closer to the original source material to form this new album of three tracks. running time: 15min. :: more
