A Meadow Full of Music (2019)

performance, book

This project was realised with the help of Road Books residency in Iniscarra, Cork. After visiting the meadows and woods which are in the process of rewilding, I contemplated how to occupy the space beyond the reaches of my own body. This resulted in cellos calling and respondng to one another across the meadow grass, similar to how the birds and insects navigate one another. The work resolved into a book that offers instructions on how the performance can be repeated.
