Chris Watson: Going With The Flow

1346869800 - 1346875200

This major new commission by renowned sound recordist created an acoustic journey down the River Tyne from its sources to the sea.

Going With The Flow is a unique soundscape, a seasonal time compression consisting entirely of location recordings gathered and composed between February and August 2012. 

Taking inspiration from the actions and rhythms of the river, the recordings tracked the course of the flow and the voices from the backsides between which is passes, following the sonic metamorphosis of upland rainfall to tidal seawater.

Chris's recordings were presented at The Sage Gateshead alongside visuals by Andy Greenwoord. The incredible sound design for the performance was designed by Tony Myatt of the University of York. See below for some images of the event.
