Event Details

I would like to share a piece that was made in 2020, by myself and visual artist Sam Francis. We were recipients of a British Music Collection / Sound & Music ‘Interpreting Isolation’ commission. We used the water as a way to stay connected, and the high tide was our focus:

Drawing upon water as a source of inspiration and as a metaphor for the Covid 19 situation, Tina Hitchens based in Bristol and Sam Francis in Weston Super Mare met virtually over two weeks to connect their separate locations through different water sources – the WSM coast and the River Frome in Eastville, Bristol that both conjoin with the Severn Estuary. At the changing times of high tide they met virtually to observe, listen, look, meditate on and respond to the connecting pull of the water, the environment and surroundings to connect creatively and personally as a lifeline during these uncertain and disconnected times.
