Residents share stories for sound walk

24 July 2010

Last weekend was spent camping (in the rain) at Barn Farm camping site in Birchover, Derbyshire.

My friend (and very good photographer) Michelle came along to document interviews with residents of Wirksworth.  The content of the interviews was based on residents experience of living in the town and their historic knowledge of the area.  These stories will be embedded into the sound walk ‘Don’t Shoot the Messenger’ for Wirksworth Festival in September.

For further information and to listen to the sound walk please go to

Lucy Stevens’ artistic practice examines the acoustic ecology of the natural environment, using field recording, digital illustration, performance and printmaking as a tool to visualise sound produced by wildlife, weather and other natural phenomena.
