LUCIE Potter is an artist with an ear to the ground ... and the sky, and the trees, and the air.
The latest artist in residence at Tatton Park, Lucie Potter has been capturing the sounds of Tatton for a special artwork.
Over the last few months Lucie has been recording the day and night-time sounds of the parkland, for the creation of a distinctive Sound Walk which is now available to visitors.
She said: “Sound is a sensual medium, which can evoke other times and places for us. Hearing is subtle, yet can also have a profound effect on the listener”.
Using high-tech recording equipment and sensitive microphones, her work sets out to 'reveal a world just out of our perception'.
One of the most thrilling moments is the eerie sound of sparring stags recorded on a cold night in February.
The Sound Walk also features a scripted voiceover and interviews with Tatton staff and volunteers.
Lucie added: “There is something about walking and listening, especially in such a beautiful place as Tatton Park, which is quite special. I have planned a few sound effect surprises along the way for people too!”
