River Echoes 2021

Water forms the arteries of the planet. We are 60% water. Water is a key ingredient for life, and a key catalyst for the origin of biological life on earth. What could be a deeper and more direct connection between the planet, other species and each other?

River Echoes is a collective artist-led investigation into Bristol’s waterways through a series of participatory Deep Listening Walks and a live sound, music and film event on and under the waters of Bristol, commissioned by Ginkgo Projects, sponsored by Bouygues UK.

Throughout September 2021, explore the sounds of Bristol from an underwater perspective on a Deep Listening Walk with Bristol-based artist, Kathy Hinde, who will be joined by a variety of guests sharing unique insights into Bristol’s rivers and waterways.

In October, at River Echoes Live, become immersed in resonant soundscapes and glistening traces at a site-specific music, sound and film performance inspired by the hidden river Frome, taking place around the Bathurst Basin.
