East Carlton, Northamptonshire – Thankful Village #43

We take disposable film cameras and Fisher Price cassette players to East Carlton.

Me and Abigail have designed a game. We have a map of the village and have drawn a grid over it. We split up and wander round the village for the length of one side of a C90 cassette.

The lines on the grid on the Y axis denote pitch and the lines on the X axis denote tonality. The idea is that the shape of our walk around the village will dictate a tune. What we see and hear would inform the words. We say what we see into our cheap plastic recorders. We try to speak and take pictures without thinking. We let memories and observations collide.

We let the village create it’s own song. We chase the light.
