Deep Listening Walk #2 : 5 Sept 2021

The second River Echoes Deep Listening Walk is at 2pm on Sunday 5th September to coincide with Soundwalk September. Location : Bathurst Basin

Join artist Kathy Hinde on a walk to listen to Bristol from an underwater perspective using hydrophones.  Listen at Bathurst Basin, a former millpond that forms part of the floating harbour close to where the river Frome culvert re-joins the tidal Avon Cut.

Kathy will be joined by Dr. Ana Castro-Castellón, who describes herself an agent of water remediation and says “I use nature, its physco-chemical and biological principles to remediate freshwater anthropogenic pollution and improve water quality for humans and wildlife”. Ana will share some insights into the benefits of reedbeds for water quality as we listen to the one recently installed at the Basin.

River Echoes Deep Listening Walks and are transmitted live onto wireless headphones offering an enhanced listening experience of a live mix between the usually inaudible underwater soundscape and amplified sounds of the surroundings interspersed with a conversation between the walking guides.

The walk is part of a series of six Deep Listening walks that form an ongoing collective investigation into Bristol’s waterways leading towards a live event RIVER ECHOES.

Highlights from the Listening walk will be available to listen to as a podcast after the event.

River Echoes is a project by Kathy Hinde with producer Sam Francis, Commissioned by Ginkgo Projects, and sponsored by Bouygues UK.
