Freedom Festival 2019

Broken Orchestra: Fair Winds and Following Seas


Presented by The Broken Orchestra featuring Vicky Foster

A new commission for Freedom Festival 2019, in partnership with Hull Yorkshire’s Maritime City and with support from ACE project funds and BBC Blue Room.

Embark on a journey along the River Hull with a personal soundscape created by The Broken Orchestra exploring a historically rich yet seemingly forgotten area of the city.

Music and poetry created by production duo Pat Dooner and Carl Conway-Davis, and poet Vicky Foster weaves multiple musical textures and words to create powerful and evocative 3D soundscapes especially for this audio walking tour.

This unique experience will take the form of an individual walking tour guided by the soundscape. 

This project will be returning as a further developed piece 2023/24
