'soon silence will have passed into legend' - for field recording, violin & voice (2016)

 

'soon silence will have passed into legend' is comprised mainly of a field recording. This recording highlights the intrusion of noise into generally peaceful areas, and shows the impossibility of escape from these sounds. The vocal part has two main elements, poetic texts on natural sound, and extracts from a scientific paper on the effect of noise pollution on birds nesting habits. Listening with headphones is recommended. 

Vocal by Catherine Chapman, violin by Claire Hamlen
