Beach - West Bay (Lost and Found Symphony) :: various participants (2017)

‘sound: lost and found’ was an encounter with environment that focused on sound and listening. A circular walk from West Bay to Bridport, Dorset, and back. Seeking out ‘lost’ and ‘hidden’ sounds – from inside objects, underwater sounds and electromagnetic sounds, recordings made during the walk were used to realise the Lost and Found Symphony, a soundscape composition produced during a live, improvised performance at the Salt House, West Bay, Dorset.
