A Grounding

Made in collaboration with Eleanor Duffin, A Grounding (2023) is a speculative immersion in narrative substrate and sound. Approached by Eleanor to extend her lovely spoken word piece, I worked mainly with field recordings and plundered dialogue, alongside a smattering of synthesis.

In May 2023 we got the opportunity to present the work at the Od Arts festival in East Coker. Along with a live reading by Eleanor on the opening night, the audio work ran throughout the weekend. It was also presented at Fiction Machines at Bath Spa University in July 2023.

Below is a video snippet, the work will be online soon. The photo in the middle is by Katy Docking.
