Presenter/artist: Soundcamp (Dawn Scarfe and Grant Smith)

Title: Soundtent

Outline: SoundCamp will be exploring soundscapes around Dartington Hall from a listening lab in a tent on the edge of the gardens (location will depend on mobile signal achievable). We will use a variety of audio devices,  live streaming with mobiles and Raspberry Pi’s.

The Third Landscape – an undetermined fragment of the Planetary Garden -designates the sum of the space left over ..(délaissé) .., transitional spaces, neglected land (friches), swamps, moors, peat bogs, but also  roadsides, shores, railroad embankments (Clément)

Victor Hugo called it “bastard countryside”. The landscape theorist Alan Berger called it “drosscape”. The artist Philip Guston called it “crapola”. And the environmentalist Marion Shoard called it “edgeland”, .  (McFarlane)
