Future and Form

Shifting Lines

Mona Arshi and Mutiny

FRIDAY 21 MAY –SUNDAY 30 MAY

This is a past event which has now ended.

The shifting nature of the North Norfolk coast is evoked through the subtle choreography of voice, natural sounds, video, photography and sensor data in this new multimedia poetry collection by Mona Arshi.

In collaboration with sound artist Peter Cusack, the work experiments with granular synthesis audio techniques, spatial audio and field recordings.

Inspired by and recorded at the stunning vistas of Cley Wildlife Reserve, Arshi draws on the ancient Arabic poetry form of ghazal combined with these cutting edge audio techniques from sound artist Peter Cusack to conjure this elemental landscape.

Birdsong, wind in the reeds and distant waves entwine with the poet’s voice to create a polyphonic immersive experience  – as if the poems are rising out of the shoreline itself.

Visit Cley Reserve to see the installation, where you will also be able to listen to location specific excerpts on your phone as you explore the reserve, visitor centre and bird hides.

An online version of the installation is available here.
