An encounter with the environment that’s focused on sound and listening. A circular walk from West Bay to Bridport and back. Specialist field recording equipment will be provided and you will seek out ‘lost’ and ‘hidden’ sounds – from inside objects, underwater sounds and electromagnetic sounds. Following an afternoon workshop session, focusing on sound preparation, you will use your recordings to help realise the Lost and Found Symphony, a soundscape composition to be produced during a live, improvised performance at 6.pm in the Salt House.
