I have spent a month at CAMAC (art, science, technology organisation), based in Marnay-sur-Seine, as part of an artist residency programme. As a result I have created 3 new sound installations, inspired by the pigeon post into Paris. Developed from a series of experimental studio works, all 3 sound installations were shown as part of the Open studio event at CAMAC on 28 April.
Marnay-sur-Seine is rural and remote and CAMAC is positioned with the River Seine on one side and a transport canal on the other. Every morning I was woken by a chorus of birds and the first chime of the day by the church bell. At dusk a chorus of frogs could be heard from the River Seine. Ive kept a blog to document my time at CAMAC and will use the new sound installations to fuel further work now that Im back in Leicester… all I need now is a studio space!
