Beachcomber

A sonic presentation of George Mackay Brown’s poem Beachcomber, incorporating Kevin MacNeil’s poem Words, Seahorses. Beachcomber read by Tony Bradford, Words, Seahorses read by Lucy Macrae, also featuring Nicolás Fernández.

Here is an in-depth demonstration of the Reaper session I used in this project:
