Directed by Kaffe Matthews, ' The swamp that was...' is a multi-layered opera for sonic bicycles, made spring 2012 in collaboration with timelab, local Ghent communities, developer Dave Griffiths/FoAM, Flemish sound artist Els Viaene and mapman Peter Edwards. To be performed by visitors as they cycle the streets of Ghent on a satellite linked sonic bicycle. A work of sonic archaeology that knits together the spirits of the living and the dead and will hover invisible over the streets until the sonic cyclist passes through to trigger and reveal its shifting strands and harmonies. Enveloped by the music that changes as you go, audience find their own narrative. Rediscover your city. Was that a swarm of bees passing as the trumpets sounded and a kitchen sung Turkish song appeared round the corner? Did you find the last elephant?
