River Echoes Live

On Sunday 17th October, a music, sound and film event created by Bristol based artist Kathy Hinde took place around Bathurst Basin, all inspired by listening to Bristol from an underwater perspective. This follows Kathy’s fascinating deep listening walk held around the Basin in early September.

Event programme

12pm – 4pm : underwater sounds emerged from curious metallic horns placed on the quaysides around the Basin.

4pm – 5pm : Bristol musicians Liz Purnell, Pete Judge & James Gow, joined by Sam Underwood & Beck Baker (ORE) and Sophie Cooper performed on the Cabot Cruising Club pontoon and on boats and paddleboard on the water.

7:30pm – midnight : as the sun set and the tide was high, a film created by exposing sediment from the river Frome onto 16mm film was projected from the side of the Avon New Cut close to the Louisiana. As the tide retreated the film was gradually revealed onto the mud banks of the New Cut.

River Echoes was a project by Kathy Hinde with producer Sam Francis, commissioned by Ginkgo Projects, and sponsored by Bouygues UK.
