Scanner - Dark As A Raven

Excerpt from a new sound installation that connects languages, outer space and history. The meaning of Corby is 'dark as a raven' and the raven is known to be able to mimic the human voice and sounds, so you can hear these echoing and resounding around the forest. The work also reflects on stories of Corby's links to outer space - there is a large crater on the planet Mars and recently a local grandmother composed a prayer of peace dedicated to the lost crew of Apollo 11. The work can be heard in full from 1 August - 31 October 2016 in Thoroughsale Woods, Corby,Northamptonshire, UK
