LISTEN AGAIN to the first River Echoes Deep Listening walk which took place on the River Frome at Eastville park on July 18th for World Listening Day. To find out about future walks, check EVENTS.

Kathy Hinde brought some sensitive microphones and hydrophones so everyone present could listen to the natural surroundings in an enhanced way – and, most importantly, tune in to the usually hidden underwater sounds of the river. Kathy was joined by freshwater ecologist Dr. Ian Thornhill from Bath Spa University who offered insights into what we might be listening to and identified some of the species present lurking in the depths and shallows of the river Frome and Eastville Park lake.

Thanks to everyone who came along for making it a memorable day, photos below by Paul Blakemore. River Echoes is a project by Kathy Hinde with producer Sam Francis, Commissioned by Ginkgo, and sponsored by Bouygues UK.
