Jennifer Walshe and Lee Patterson collaborate for next Faster Than Sound event

Vocalist and composer Jennifer Walshe and sound artist Lee Patterson are collaborating for the next instalment in Aldeburgh Music’s Faster Than Sound series. Taking place 1 November, The Chimes Hour is inspired "by the Suffolk folk belief that children born at the hours when church bells tolled had the ability to discern ‘happenings hidden from the sight of lesser mortals’."

Working with Peter Meanwell and Aldeburgh Young Musicians, Walshe and Patterson are creating a collection of compositions and improvisations from the amplification and recording of the building and its surrounding area, to be presented as a soundwalk through Aldeburgh Music’s Hoffman building and surrounds.

The tour starts at 7pm. Check full details here
