SLEEPERTOWN on tour

Circa Regna Tonat, the geo-located soundwalk I created as part of Richard Carr’s SLEEPERTOWN project, is to be relocated to Tullamore in the Midlands area of Ireland, opening in June this year as part of curator Brendan Fox’s project, Museum of Everyone. ‘Circa Regna Tonat’ references the metaphor of the storm and unfolds over a 15 minute binaural soundwalk guided by a host of manipulated voices reading excerpts from a poem by Sir Thomas Wyatt (Innocentia Veritas Viat Fides Circumdederunt me inimici mei). The poem was written in 1536 after the writer reportedly witnessed the beheading of Anne Boleyn from his cell in the Tower of London.

I’m really hoping to be there for the opening this time, after the original vernissage in Gorey, Co. Wexford had to be moved online because of Covid…
