I’ve just added my contribution to the Landlinks project on to radio aporee at https://aporee.org/maps/projects/landlinks
If you’ve not come across radio aporee before, its a great way to explore the “sounds of the world”. Working as another way to think about landscape and located sound I’ve used it before for walking projects – https://aporee.org/maps/projects/callanaiswk
Have a listen; I hope you enjoy it.
I am delighted to say that my work “The 42 walks of Contención Island” has been shortlisted for the Sound Walk September 2020 Awards. You can see the full shortlist here – https://walklistencreate.org/2020/10/15/sound-walk-september-2020-awards-shortlist/.
Winners and honourable mentions will be announced in an online ceremony in mid-January.
“So, here’s the idea … In the face of the containment measures we have all found ourselves in we have been allowed out of our homes for one period of exercise a day. A containment strategy is vital for the containment of the Covid-19 Pandemic, but I wanted to respond to it artistically. I also wanted to produce something that could be used by others when they weren’t, or couldn’t get, outside. From the start of the UKs lockdown, every day I walked from my house, for 20 minutes in any and all directions; I mapped my route and recorded my walking. At first when I‘d walked for about 20 minutes I stopped, for a brief rest, then return to my house. But after a while I had made Contención Island (contención is containment in Esperanto – an international name for an international pandemic). I walked until easing started. The full versions of the walks are all available at www.martinpeccles.com along with the daily poem, a mesostic, and the emerging map of the island. So … listen to the walks – imagine the island in your head, create your own walk, make your own map, enjoy. Stay safe and well in these strange times.”
