Project Description

Steve Peters

Steve Peters proposes a new sound work combining the following elements: field recordings of environmental sounds, namely church bells, collected in the civil parish of São Martinho das Moitas; electronic processing of some of those sounds; spoken text consisting of single words and place names that evoke the regional landscape; the names of local plants and animals (possibly endangered species), some of which sung in Latin. These various elements will be woven together to create an evocative portrait of the regional landscape and the collective human relationship to that place through language.
