This project, British Soundscape, was exhibited at the Royal College of Art from the 5th to the 9th of February in 2014. I took it as a great chance to try out the idea with a broader audience through curating and engagement. The approach I took in the exhibition cor- relates with the theme of sea, “message in a bottle” The response to my show was much better than I had expected.
So many visitors shared with me their love and their memories of the sea. Among my visitors were students, young parents with babies, grandparents, musicians and journalists – people from all ages and different industries. The thing in common among all of them was that this proj- ect recalled their love for nature, and made them feel very relaxing and warm.
“This is a very meaningful project. I’m a musician myself and I love the sea. And it’s a wonderful idea to bring the two together! ”
“Make me feel home. The best memory is the time I came back home by ferry and my heart full of joy. (I come from an Island: Sardinia)”
That is my very simple starting point for British Soundscape – Nature and music as remedy. I’m glad that I fulfilled my initial brief. Thank you, everyone who has come along for my exhibition.
