Walduck, Jackie and Lee, Adrian (2017) Sensing Nature. Waveney and Blyth Arts Item format: Performance. (KAR id:91861)


Audio recording of a site-specific music performance at Thornham Magna, July 2017. The composition explored non-visual aspects of indigenous species found at the site, and was performed by Tactile Ensemble (Dir. Jackie Walduck) plus 40 musicians from the blind and partially sighted communities of Ipswich, Norwich and Lowestoft. The audience was led blindfold around the site to eight locations in which live music was performed, inspired by the sounds, movement and behaviours of: crickets, bees, bats, woodland birds, chaffinches, blue tits, coal tits and great tits, woodpeckers, cukoos, weasels and wrens. Tactile ensemble: Jackie Walduck (leader, composer) Adrian Lee (composer), Matt Wadsworth, James Risdon, Tom Jackson and Ben Markland. A spoken commentary is provided.
