Stephan Barrett & Adam Kinsey – Littoral Transmissions

Littoral Transmissions is a piece based around the idea of recreating a sonically imagined coastline. The artists use this as a focus for their diverse interests in free improvisation, site-specifc performance, transmission art, field recording, explorations of London’s edgelands (the River Lea, Wanstead Flats, Walthamstow wetlands and Rainham Marshes amongst others) and travels further afield. They combine live improvisations involving Modular synth, clarinet and experiments with contact mics, hydrophones and found objects with layers of recorded sound created using cassette tape loops and various forms of digital playback.
