The Journey So Far - Rue Collinge

Welcome to our journal, where you can discover who we are, and what we've been up to so far!

An amble in Amble...

Meeting for the first time as a Creative Team! Rue Collinge (dramaturg/poet), Katie Doherty (composer), Corrie Livesey (assistant sound designer) and Matthew Tuckey share a Sound Walk around the south pier and harbour in Amble. The weather (just about!) holds out.

Sound Walking is a fundamental activity in Matthew's practice, and sharing this with the wider creative team was invaluable in establishing a shared language and common reference point in the project.

Creating the invitation...

Rue and Matthew begin by reading the text that has inspired the project and drawing on Matthew's sailing memorabilia. 

From here, invitations and questions can be put to the community...

Callout time!

Armed to the teeth with flyers and posters - both digital and physical - we ask people to get involved. Kind local shops agree to display our project, Facebook goes wild with groups local to Amble, and the community newspaper The Ambler picks up our story. Sights and sounds start flooding in (pun absolutely intended)...

Story time!

Rue and Matthew tackle the community contributions so far - a rich and vibrant collection of sights and sounds, recording what it's like to live in Amble. What an eye-opening experience brimming in stories!

We also enjoy the graphic scores sent to us by The Duchess's Community High School - nearly fifty students have got involved, and shared their own ideas of The Rime.

The scrapbook is starting to come together...

Field recordings...

Time to put our microphones where our ears can't go - right into the sand, under the water, over stormy, windy waves... Matthew and Corrie spend two weeks trekking Freida the binaural head and the rest of the gear around Amble to capture as many sounds as possible. With a surprise appearance from some dolphins!

A new team member...

Matthew, Katie and Rue meet to select an emerging artist for the project's graphic score - a response to all the research and work done so far. Beatrice Keelan joins the team!
