Marching, singing and stamping, Lakes Alive joined thousands lining the streets of Edinburgh yesterday for the Processions 2018 event, marking 100 years of the women's vote.
Deep in the Lake District, where the landscape is suffused with literary and walking history, composers Strijbos & van Rijswijk and poet Jacob Polley have created To Travel and To Matter – a contemporary site-specific installation in the shape of a walk. Powerfully fusing music, sound and voices, and inspired by the history and topography of the location, To Travel and To Matter uses Strijbos and van Rijswijk’s digital app Walk With Me to move the listener at their own pace through a glorious landscape and to create a unique and dramatic experience on the route.
