Croft Castle: Adrian Utley (Portishead)
Sonic Journeys commissions artists to create new works inspired by specific stretches of landscape experienced on rural and urban journeys. The music is available for download so that you can listen to it as you take the same journey with the help of a map. You will find the audio file and the map in the Downloads section at the bottom of the page. And if you can’t make the journey, just sit back and enjoy this video of the landscape, together with the music it inspired.
For his Sonic Journey, Adrian Utley from Portishead has created a new piece of music in response to a walk amongst the remarkable ancient trees at the National Trust’s Croft Castle in Herefordshire, including the 1000 year old ‘Quarry Oak’, unique triple chestnut avenue and mysterious ancient hawthorns.
Utley has collaborated with Portishead film maker John Minton to create a video which brings together the music with the landscape that inspired it.
Sonic Journeys is conceived and produced by sounduk. Watch all the previously commissioned Sonic Journeys.
