Saturday 5th – Sunday 6th May 2018
In May 2018 I was invited to be a resident artist on the Suffolk Soundcamp along with Fred Bungay, Kyle Kruse and Neil Stringfellow, by artist and curator Daniella Kay Ash.
The Suffolk Soundcamp took place at Gunton Warren Nature Reserve and was an opportunity to record new sounds, and explore ways of creating new work in response to or using sound.
Lowestoft’s first annual Sound Art Residency, the Suffolk Soundcamp, was part of an international network of listening points recording at sunrise on International Dawn Chorus Day. The sounds of daybreak were streamed live from the Suffolk Camp to a 24 hour broadcast relayed live by audio streamers which tracked the sun around the globe at daybreak.
My practice is focussed on landscape surfaces and the natural and human influenced degradation of them. Using my time on this residency to explore the nature reserve I have focussed on the unfixed and granular surface of the beach and sand dunes. I made sound recordings of the what it sounds like to walk on these surfaces and will be converting the sounds into visual forms. Using a combination of 3d printing and traditional printmaking techniques I am developing a series of printing plates based on these representations, and will update soon with progress.
