Caught by the River

Murmuration #2

4th September 2018

Following the success of their first trip earlier this year, Jez riley French has announced a second ‘Murmuration’ recording event with he, Chris Watson and guest artists, taking place in June 2019 in Glenshee, Scotland.

“Geographically Glenshee offers Munros (mountains over 3000 feet), lochs, rivers and glens”, says Jez, “The trip promises to be a rich source of inspiration, listening and recording possibilities and a chance to discuss and share knowledge around the subjects of located sound, acoustic ecology and contemporary sound practice in its varied forms. Additionally for this trip each of the guest artists will offer their insights into the relationship between located sound and the image (still and moving). We’ll have talks, q&a sessions and a highly enjoyable 16mm found footage workshop.”

Remarkably, the trip is already fully booked, but waiting list information can be found here, along with more general information about the weekend and future Murmuration events.

Chris Watson brings one of his legendary sound presentations to our stage at The Good Life Experience in a couple of weeks’ time.
