Ebb and Flow

Location recordings along the river Alde in Suffolk.

Using a  surround sound microphone set-up I recorded the sounds of the River Alde/Ore. These sounds have been edited and arranged to give an experience of the sounds of the river. Listen to the dawn chorus on the Sailor’s Path, the birds on the marshes, human activity; sailing, farming, bell ringing, the wind in the reeds and waves at Shingle Street.

Ebb and Flow (2008) was an innovative arts project devised by Suffolk Coastal ARTS and the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Unit that was set up to explore the rich history and heritage of life along the Alde and Ore and has involved the local community in its work.
