Ling received: fishermen of the far haaf – a sound walk around Stenness

lodgesboats-copy-2000x1200 copy.jpg
A sound walk at Stenness Fishing station, Northmavine, created collaboratively with film/sound artist Jo Millett, and artists collective Satsymph: https://satsymph.co.uk/   

This sound walk invites you to explore Stenness beach as it once was – an important fishing station until late 19th century. Re-imagine the beach as a hive of activity, where communities of fishermen and traders made temporary homes over summer months.

Placed in the landscape are audio fragments of sounds and voices, taken from observations of early travellers and archival documents directly relating to deep sea ‘haaf’ fishing: agreements binding men to the summer fishing, indebtedness, accounts of storms and loss of life, even what the fishermen bought for their tea –  so you will encounter many different voices as you wander around the beach.


Here's a link to the Sound Walk September page - where you can hear some extracts from the sound walk<a href='https://walklistencreate.org/walkingpiece/ling-received-fishermen-of-the-far-haaf-a-sound-walk-around-a-former-fishing-station-at-stenness-northmavine/'><img src="https://i0.wp.com/walklistencreate.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/sws.2021.award_.n.jpg?fit=640%2C326&ssl=1"></a>
