Commissioned by Aerial Festival 2020: Sounds & Words in the Lake District.

Sounds of Silence Commission

Full playlist:

Is This Just One Day? is an evolving ambient and multi-layered soundscape experience of a journey through the Lake District. The piece picks out locations around the Lake District, which have particular value to the authors. From these areas, field recordings from the landscape were taken and put to music to form a collection of sonic verses and words totalling 30 minutes.

This piece is a meditation on the passing of time across the Lake District, of the repetitions of our experience and of our overall lack of agency with how our environment can change.
