Harry Matthew installation at Leith Hill

Harry Matthews‘ installation Sound, Unseen will be active at the National Trust’s Leith Hill Place in the autumn.

The work features locally sourced field recordings and voiceover where Harry contemplates what might have happened to the audible environment if oil drilling had been allowed to start. You will be able to listen to the work with headphones on the ground floor in the Wedgwood room.

Taking inspiration from composer R Murray Schafer’s theory of acoustic ecology, Harry has composed a piece that seeks to evoke personal experiences concerning sound. His work investigates the impact of human activity on natural habitats whilst also promoting a way of listening that broadens our relationship to the environment.
