Homeland Departure

room 4 ECHOES

Brighton, England, United Kingdom
The piece is experienced through a journey down the Brighton Pier. The concept behind the piece centres itself around the idea of a movement into the unknown, where the sounds and the listeners surroundings do not necessarily align in a tangible way. I chose the Brighton Pier as the location for the sound walk as its structure forms a discursion from the land, which, together with the audio, symbolises a departure from our familiar surroundings. I structured the audio walk to explore this concept through the order in which my compositions are played during the walk. The further away from land the listener walks, the less familiar the compositions sound. The pieces also accumulate a sinister undertone during the walk, inducing a sense of unease which puts emphasis on the theme of unfamiliarity.
