Soundings Beneath Southwark

Soundings Beneath Southwark

Saturday May 4 from 2pm-3.45pm SIGN UP HERE

Meet at Dilston Grove in Southwark Park join us for a short walk from Southwark Park Gallery to Stave Hill Ecology Park detouring to Rotherhithe Village with InspiralLondon associate artists Gail Dickerson, Keith Turpin, Isa Suarez and Charlie Fox – a unique perspective on what lies beneath our feet – exploring geology, tunnelling, waste, soil and grounding underground sounds.

Sharing the artist research and expertise, you will discover a wealth of knowledge and enrich your imagination by experiencing what lies beneath your feet – all the urban infrastructure, tunnels, engineering that crisscrosses this floating peninsula – super sewers, geological sampling, soils, Brunel’s experiments, the infrastructure around the docks. Exploring together in a fun way the sounds and resonances that lie beneath us we walk the surface of the streets and greenways.

We will then walk onto Stave Hill Ecology Park to join Reveil 11 for A live sound intervention with composer Isa Suarez: A multi-sensory exploration where we will feel the earth, listen to its soil and the resonance of the air – culminating into an interactive performance.
Expect the unexpected through deep collective listening, live sound and sonic meditations . This is part of soundcamp’s annual live audio feed and deep listening event – from streamers around the world at daybreak for 24 hours of soundings from the environment – broadcasting from Stave Hill Ecology Park. see HERE

There will be some teatime refreshments along the way but also tea and cake at Stave Hill. If you plan on staying for evening at spoundcamp do bring food to share or to cook on open fires. Visit Reveil 11 website for more info.
