Exhibition: Suffolk Voices
Friday 8 – Sunday 24 JuneFree Event
The Pond Gallery
Part of Aldeburgh Festival
British/Australian artist Samantha Heriz grew up in Suffolk and has long been fascinated by the transformation and dilution of the county’s accent. Following her residency at Snape Maltings in 2017, Samantha presents her immersive sound installation created from recordings of today’s Suffolk voices, showing the increasing diversity in accent.
The voices speak the words of a bygone Suffolk fisherman’s song, reformed to create a modern soundscape telling of migration, globalisation and the transitory patterns of our region.
