Public Record: Estuary
(Scroll down to stream or download the audio piece.)
Public Record: Estuary is a cycle of audio poems intended to be listened to on walks around the old fishing village of Leigh-on-Sea. The poems are inspired by archival reports of 19th-century Estuary sea accidents. Set against the sights of today’s Estuary, they offer a new perspective on the clash of picturesque landscape and post-industrial edgelands. As you walk, you’ll find yourself immersed in the forgotten lives and colourful past of this “half-marine place”, caught between nature and industry, between ancient and modern.
