For mental health awareness week (18th - 24th May) we want to create something that truly reflects how our community is feeling.
We’re inviting you to use the button opposite to record a word, sound or line of poetry that reflects how you honestly feel right now.
We’ll use the recordings to create a sonic sound poem. We’ve done this before with the people of Wells. That one was installed in the Lady Chapel within the Cathedral. The piece features a collage of sounds including: the voices of local people, choristers rehearsing, chimes, echoing footsteps and the movement of people within the hallowed, yet busy, space.
An excerpt of the Wells Cathedral soundscape
- Maybe you have a few lines of poetry?
- Maybe you’d like to capture sounds of your allocated exercise time?
- Maybe you’d like to send us the sounds of your street as lockdown changes?
Once we’ve collected your sounds we’ll get to work compiling, merging and composing a new work of sound-art and share it to our social media platforms.
We'd love to hear from you!
