Listening sound walk 2pm, Performance at the Yan 6pm
Sound Artists Kelly Jayne Jones and Lee Patterson
Grizedale, Ambleside LA22 0QJ
An afternoon exploring and listening in Grizedale Forest culminating in a performance in The Yan.
Armed with suggestions from our Listening Guide we’ll explore the many trails in the forest taking time to stop and listen in all sorts of playful and surprising ways. We’ll stop at the sculpture RUUP to listen to the soundscape composition by Kelly and Lee amplified by the unique shape of the sculpture where sounds of the forest and fells will mix with the sounds of objects and recordings. You won’t always know exactly what you are hearing!
Afterwards, join Kelly and Lee in The Yan for two solo performances. Kelly will be playing a recent work which draws upon Cumbria’s ‘musical stones’, including John Ruskin’s 1884 lithophone. Lee is a sonic alchemist whose live performances explore the quietest of sounds drawn from the most unlikely of sources from chalk dissolving in water to a single burning peanut.
