In Place 1: It Does Nothing, Absolutely Nothing, But Be Itself
Colin Riley’s latest album In Place explores how places make us feel, and how in turn we are able to speak back to them through our words and music. In the first of three podcasts he focuses on how the natural world had provided us with a place for inspiration, contemplation, solace and escape. As well as his own music he plays pieces from artists for whom nature and landscape is a central source of inspiration. He also discusses this theme in conversation with Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane (collaborators on the recent best-selling book ‘Lost Words’) and with the writer of ‘The Fish Ladder’ Katharine Norbury who is editing of a new anthology of women’s writing on landscape.
A short film (by Sophie Dixon) examining the source of this project was shown at the ‘Language, Landscape and the Sublime Symposium’ at Dartington Hall and Sharpham House, Devon, England June 28/29 2016.
A short series with Resonance fm, will be coming in the Autumn and the In Place album will be released in 2018.
