Trace – 2017
(Sound piece for two speakers, 04:35)
This composition was inspired by my experience of the coastal landscapes in Mid-Wales. In particular a journey 6 miles inland to Craig y Aderyn (Birds Rock) a rocky cliff 250m above sea level. Some 400-500 years ago it used to be the highest sea cliff along the coastal edge. Walking towards this cliff I walked the old sea floor. The flat featureless landscape became completely fluid and my journey became a tracing of the seas retreat.
Drawing students describe each others work translating abstract marks to imaginary objects, experiences and sounds.
