My walk this week is from August 2020 when I was taking part in a Sound Memories project called Walk 19. I and three other sound recordists were invited to record the sounds of places described by elders in care homes to Cheryl Beer, project Lead Artist funded by The Arts Council of Wales National Lottery Good Causes and Founder and Director of Sound Memories Dementia Friendly Radio Station.
One of the places I visited was Burry Port on the Burry Inlet in Carmarthenshire. Some of the photos I took are below and the project soundscape that Cheryl produced from my audio clips can be found on the Walk 19 page of her website (see link above) along with all the others she made for the care homes she was working with.
What a lovely project – I hope it brought smiles to the faces of the people involved.
Thank you Sandra. I believe it did
Enjoyed the visit to this place. I usually compare seaside pictures with our own beach here.
Thank you Diane. I also enjoy my “visits” to you neck of the woods (beaches that would be).
Lovely! I was there – taking part – in your world – thru senses we might take for granted.
I’m curious to know how has this project has been received by the elders who described their places to you? and, how is this project getting out into the world so it can be replicated?
Thank you Diane. I believe the elders have very much enjoyed the sound memory stories made for them but I will pass your question on to Cheryl. You are not the only one to ask.
