“The Isle Is Full of Noises”

‘The Isle Is Full of Noises’, a new piece of sound, music and animation exploring voice-hearing is showing at Palace Green Library, Durham – as part of Hearing Voices: Suffering, Inspiration and the Everyday, thanks to the generous participation of five people who came to a workshop this summer in Durham to discuss their experiences. The piece was commissioned by Hearing the Voice, Durham University – an inspiring, long-term, interdisciplinary research project. The show runs from 5 November to 26 Feb 2017.

You can watch the whole thing here.

Thanks to Shannon Taylor, Judy Christian and Tamsyn Adams for their collaboration and support on the animation. To Peter Burgess for the use of his poem ‘Gentle Mother’. To the anonymous artists who contributed their workshop drawings and also the ‘Hopebird’ textile. To Chris Letcher for mastering the sound and being very encouraging about my first attempt at animation. And to Ruby Hamill for her water-flute (both invention and performance).
