The Cornish Ballad

And so one journey ends and another begins. From the arctic tundra, Sámi reindeer herders, Shamans and underworlds to the people who inhabit the timeless county of Cornwall.

Paced over a period of 6 months, I will walk to communities drawing contributors from Cornwall’s diverse population, representing the many ways of living found in the county. We will navigate routes to ancient sites, down mines over Tors, along coastlines and across the sea sharing stories alluding to shifts of people, music, traditions, folklore, seasons and natural resources across the region. The walks will be documented using a Soundfield microphone which records in surround sound.

Combining field recordings, sound design and specially commissioned music score, a surround sound performance will take place at The Lost Gardens of Heligan followed by standalone installation at Cotehele House, Lizard Point Lighthouse and forest on Davidstow moor this summer.
