Created for IMMA's Earth Rising Eco Festival 2023, the IMMA Timescapes Soundwalk is a hybrid soundwalk / performance resulting from a collaboration between composer and sound artist Robert Coleman, ornithologist Seán Ronayne, and performer and improviser Seán Mac Erlaine.
The soundwalk explores the soundscape of IMMA and its relationship stretching from the past, through to the present day and into the future. The focus across these different moments in time allow us to perceive the human impact on the environment which can often go unnoticed due to the slow rates of change. Through eco-acoustic monitoring of bird migrations over IMMA we also explore the geographical connections which become apparent across the globe highlighting the interconnectedness of the Earth's biodiversity.
A subsequent panel discussion at 12 noon on Sunday at the People's Pavilion will explore the merging of artistic and scientific practices and what happens when these individuals engage in a process of learning from each other. This will feature in the CMC radio series, ‘We Only Want the Earth’, funded by the BAI through their climate change round for RTÉ lyric fm on the climate emergency and contemporary music and chaired by chaired by Helen Shaw of Athena Media.
