Sunrise Sound Walk led by Mandy Rathbone.
Recording equipment supplied by DIVAcontemporary Studio.
On 21st June 2014, to mark the Summer Solstice, I decided to witness and document the sunrise at Kingston Russell Stone Circle near Abbotsbury in Dorset. A friend and I met at about 4 a.m. just as the first glimmers of light were appearing in the sky.
Since then Mandy has been at Kingston Russell Stone Circle, at sunrise, recording and documenting the dawn every month on or around 21st.
6 places – £10 each

MP3 Listening Walk :: The Grey Mare and Her Colts and Kingston Russell Stone Circle led by Victoria Pirie, Mandy Rathbone and David Rogers.
Listening equipment supplied by DIVAcontemporary Studio.
Walk in the past and listen to two ‘new’ writings by Bristol poet Ralph Hoyte, with sonic soundscapes recorded by Colfox School and Weymouth College students. The Grey Mare and Her Colts (a Neolithic chambered long barrow) is a re-imagining of the myth of Rhiannon. Kingston Russell Stone Circle (a large irregular circle of Late Neolithic or Bronze age date, consisting of eighteen fallen conglomerate or sarsen stones) is a contemporary work, both created by Ralph especially for the sites.

Talk and Q&A:
ivon oates and Marc Yeats :: in conversation
Conversation themes/agenda:
ivon – I wish to open a space between definitions of ‘music’/soundwork, art-object (found object, ‘rubbish’+ intent)
Marc – experimental ‘sound’ making is inspiring as a composer: exploring the degree of investigation, intent, organizing material and finding ways to make the object ‘speak’.

The discussion will consider:

  • Relationship between music/’noise’/sound
  • Field recording (as ‘composed’), treated sounds, composition.
  • ‘musical instruments’, sounding sculpture.

Thresholds of transformation: composition as the nodal confluence between axes from instrument, extended technique enlarging palette to ‘music’; and found sounds, sounding materials to artwork (sculpture, installation).

Talk and Q&A. – Live Broadcast on DIVAcontemporary Radio.
Audio from the sound walks and the water sound experiments will be played in the studio before and after the talk.
30 places – £5 each
