Listening Between: Here and There

Walk and listen between two realities – your feet in the here and now of Chatham High Street as your ears tune to a virtual mix of slowed and real time Skylark song – the high summer striations of dry grass and insects (original audio recorded at the riverside skylark nesting site squeezed between Rochester and the River). Loop into The Brook via Batchelor Street for an ear bath in the underwater flow of the River Medway (recorded with a hydrophone at Limehouse Reach). Drift left past the taxi rank into Military Road where your circular sound walk completes. This walk is all at street level and takes between 15-20mins. Take care crossing Solomons Road and the carpark/taxi access points to Pentagon Centre area along The Brook.

Headphones or earbuds recommended.
