A Sound Walk On Walthamstow Marsh

WORDS & SOUNDS: Mark S. Williamson (Spaceship)

Constructed from field recordings collected on Walthamstow Marshes, this single track plays out an afternoon’s walk. Sounds, natural and man made, compete in this area of wilderness in London’s East End. Though for the most part a sound collage, the clang of a metal footbridge and the ring of a bicycle bell have been manipulated to form occasional backing.
