DEEP LISTENING WALK #3 : 16 SEPT 2021

The third River Echoes Deep Listening Walk is at 6pm on Thursday 16th September to coincide with Soundwalk September. Location : Bristol Floating Harbour

River Echoes is part of a collective investigation into Bristol’s waterways.

Join artist Kathy Hinde on a walk to listen to Bristol from an underwater perspective using hydrophones. Contemplate Bristol’s unique tidal range (the second largest in the world) from an edge point of the city, demarcated by a shifting watery passageway carving a space between the urban and the rural, the Avon gorge.

Kathy will be joined by a guest from Underfall Yard Trust, who will share insights into the work that happens every day to help prevent Bristol from flooding due to the high tides.

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.
