“My role on the residency was an illuminator. For this I decided to take along an audio recorder to bring back something of the trip for those of you who were not on it with us. A week on Raasay yielded hours of recordings, and so in order to reflect on the conversations we had together on Raasay, I have picked out some moments which I felt were representative of different aspects of the trip.

People sang, spoke in different languages, taught us skills, read to us, exercised, played instruments, shared stories, gave tarot readings, swam in the sea and shared every meal together. We spent a lot of time outdoors on Raasay, walking and discussing, but mainly listening. I have included some of the sounds of this place and time as we experienced it.”
