(2017) composition

tidesongs is a composition for multi-layered voice and vocal processing, composed and performed by Hanna Tuulikki and Lucy Duncombe, from elements of words and phrases derived from poems by Alec Finlay, first published in the book minnmouth (2017).

The piece explores tidal languages of the East Coast, from Shetland to Suffolk, taking the listener from mouth to sea and back again, anchored by the ‘sounds’ of place-names.

The work is being exhibited at Somewhere Becoming Sea, a Film and Video Umbrella curated exhibition in Hull, April-June 2017; and at FLOERS, at North Light Arts, Dunbar, June 2017.
