Richard Skelton location based recording project in the works, plus London installation

Two pieces of Richard Skelton news for fans of the wandering water poet. Prints and audio, plus Skelton's Limnology book will be displayed at the Paul Stolper gallery in London 29 April–1 May. Five new prints that use Limnology's glossary – which includes over 1000 water words – will also be shown. More details here.

On the horizon for next year, Skelton has also been commissioned by Forma to create works in the Lake District, which will then be made available through a smartphone app, meaning listeners can access compositions in specific locations via their GPS signal. More details on that project incoming here.
