⸎ this is the sound

our annual feast of music arts and smiles
on Saturday:
thankfully it stayed dry:
but it was brrrrr indeed:
a fascinating installation by 
Stuart Bowditch and Damien Robinson:
recordings donated by the public and 
the Essex Sound Archive:
snippets of other people's lives:
different streets, workplaces, parks, homes:
plug in your headphones and listen:
or put on your hands and 'feelsound':

take a seat, get comfy and enjoy
extraordinary sounds by Forest Fringe:
listening to kettles being filled and half heard conversations
while watching the world go by:
snippets of music, accents and song:
1'o'clock at the Uke picnic:
'play this' says Yvie:
so I strum and smile:
I watch bands, laugh at comedy hosted by Sundown Arts 
in the Meadow Tent:
Quirkish Delight make up tales of Dick Van Dyke:
I see friends I haven't seen for years and years:
and some I saw only yesterday:
craziest tent had to be The Bunker hosted by
we got comfy in Grandpa Summers living room:
hypnotised by colour and random scribbles:
challenged them to pingpong and watched the mayhem:

we did so much more:
all day:
till the cold got to our bones:
and only home and rum would do:
