> DESCRIPTION

A quiet position: amidst the bright work

A one-day workshop/field walk around Tottenham Marshes with Jez riley French

Saturday 23rd March | 10am prompt start - 5pm finish | Tottenham Marshes

Meeting point: Tottenham Hale Station at 9:45am or SoundFjord gallery at 9:15am prompt

Free but reservation ticket is essential: http://aquietposition.eventbrite.com

Listening and recording; above and under the waters.

All are welcome, though the day will be most fully explored by those with their own recording equipment. We’ll be listening in on the sounds of aquatic life through the use of hydrophones, the resonances of bridges and other structures along the way via contact microphones, using other techniques to listen in on hidden audible signals and of course taking in the sounds of birdlife in the area. 

Meeting outside Tottenham Hale train station at 10am (Or 9:15am at SoundFjord), we will walk along the Lee navigational canal, stopping when and where the mood takes us. Listening, discussing and simply enjoying the local soundscapes of this oft overlooked part of London. Depending on the weather, we might decide to head back to the SoundFjord gallery for a warm up and further discussion later in the afternoon.

Jez riley French is a lecturer, curator and specialist in intuitive composition, photographic scores and field recording (surface vibrations, audible silences, instamtics).
