Between Land and Sea
"A meditative, mournful 23 minutes of cinematic drone." - Viking’s Choice Guide To Bandcamp Day (September 2020)
A collaboration with Canadian writer Soren Gauger, Between Land and Sea is an audio art project weaving together oral history, fictional prose and electroacoustic music. The piece takes as its starting point interviews with friends across Europe and North America about their experiences of living under COVID-19 lockdown. These feed into an original piece of writing that seeks to distil the unique strangeness of this moment in history, delving into the collective unconscious to explore themes of in-between-ness, our place within the natural environment, fear and intimacy. The result is a short novella in audio form, with an original underscore and musical interludes created in response to the prose.
