Stour Valley Walk     Weir(d)

The moving, but timeless, sometimes seemingly in stasis world of water flowing over a weir and the sounds of the turbulence in the pool beneath recorded underwater using hydrophones. Hypnotic, strange, Weir(d).

Recorded during a walk of four days from Newmarket to Manningtree, the material begins at the ‘source’ of the Stour at Kirtling Green Pumping Station and then continues at various weirs on the Stour as it makes its way to the sea. Inspired by those who make art by walking; Richard Long, Hamish Fulton and with a nod to work by Chris Watson and Bill Fontana.
