Listen Playlist Show 8 : Jane Pitt and Ralph Hoyte Wednesday 24th June 2020
Jane Pitt was one of the three speakers (the others being Helen Ottaway and Sadie Harrison) for the Music from Far Away Places talk. She talked about her time in Sri Lanka as a participant in the Sura Medura International Arts Residency and demonstrated some of the work she created there. Ralph Hoyte is a member of Bristol-based Satsymph, who created a new geo-located sound walk for LISTEN. Walking Memories uses interviews collected by Home in Frome as part of the Working Memories project. Download the walk onto your phone from the Satsymph website here, and explore the town with new ears.
