Soundscape for Radiator Arts winter lantern installation at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea; December 2022.
by Mary Hooper
7 minutes and 17 seconds on a loop 

This soundscape is composed of layers of different recordings and samples that the artist has made herself and collected over five years.
For this 2022 Christmas, or Winter Solstice, installation Hooper wanted to include as many voices and languages as she could at short notice saying ‘peace and goodwill’. There are many tragedies unfolding in every country globally and never before has it been so important to remember that we are all kin under the skin.

A call out for phone voice recordings saying ‘peace and goodwill’,  resulted in 36 voices in many languages collected in just one week, which  have been edited and set into the soundscape.

Thank you to all of those voices, some local and some from our global community. The Redbird Youth collective from Galway in Ireland recorded their voices  with the help of sound Artist Anne-Marie Deacy, who the artist collaborated with in the summer. An  extract of the experiment with our voices is embedded into the final part of the soundscape, so thanks go to Anne-Marie for the use of that piece.

The sound is  on a loop, so dip in and out as you feel like it!

If you can’t visit the Pavilion, or are listening from far and wide, you can hear the soundscape on a DLWP Podcast here
