Black Water Brown Water

Black Water Brown Water began as a site-specific headphone piece for the island that separates the river Severn from the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal at the Sourport Canal Basins. The colour of these two water systems becomes a central metaphor in the work, which is presented as a dialogue between James Brindley, the great canal engineer, and Sabrina, mythical Goddess of the River Severn. The piece has subsequently been re-worked into a number of other forms including a book, a radio programme and a concert performance.
