Sonic Landscapes of Colour

Excerpts Listening Session by Somatic

  • Show Information

Sonic Landscapes of Colour is a podcast-documentary that tells the story of young (18-26) people of colour (POC) who have grown up in the South West (Somerset, Devon & Cornwall).

Built out of nine interview recording sessions, this piece delves into how participants lived experiences have shaped their relationships to topics such as identity, school, community, culture, alienation, belonging, racism and connection to local natural landscape.

The voices are underscored by a soundscape built from four recording sessions with non-western traditional instrumentalists; all based in the South West and augmented by Somatic’s own composition and sound design skills.

The nine recording sessions have been woven into two 55 minute episodes and look at topics such as: family, schooling, culture, community, identity, small town mentality, isolation and alienation, colourism, racism, connection to local natural landscape and hopes for the future.

Duration: 30 mins listening and 30 mins reflection and discussion with creator Somantic.

Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete's Dick Whittington artwork. Background: a foggy panorama photo of the city of London, with iconic buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St Paul's Cathedral. The cityscape is washed over with a burgundy haze. Foreground: A black and white cat (black body, white neck collar, white paws) looks towards the cityscape and we see them in near silhouette. They are stood on a yellow-brick path, with green grassy hills either side of them. On the hills, grey rats with large red eyes. On the left hand side of the cat, a rat holds a stereotypical hobo sack on a stick. At the top of the artwork, gold text reads: 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington.' Another group of rats with large red eyes are playing around the letters in 'Dick Whittington'. A cat paw icon replaces the dot on top of the letter 'I' in 'Dick', and a block of cheese replaces the dot on top of the second letter 'I' in 'Whittington.
