A performative sound walk led by Jane Pitt around the clutch of residential streets in Seasalter that are named after birds (incl: Nightingale Ave, Linnet Ave). Jane invites participants to join her in creating an on the spot Fl’utter-ance (verb: to make playful vocal utterings), we will collect the sounds of the street names as we walk i.e Kingfisher = zii! Eeee! Swallow = vhit vhit vhit and use them to compose a unique Seasalter soundpoem.  The resulting Seasalter  ‘Fl’utter-ance’ will be digitally recorded in situ, posted online & played in the Kent Cultural Baton Caravan on Fri 2 July.
