Orkney Soundwaves : Revealing a Tapestry of Rich Stories

A new project utilising the amazing sound archive at Orkney Library and Archive has revealed a rich tapestry of stories recorded over a long period of time.

‘Orkney Soundwaves: Home’ has been developed by Mark Jenkins & Rebecca Marr of Kolekto . What they found in the sound archives was a rich resource of voices recorded on reel-to-reel tapes and cassettes.

Taking as their theme ‘Home’ Kolekto have produced and ‘audio ballad’ which is described as a ‘lyrical and immersive experience.

The full episode will be available from 03 August through your usual podcast channel or on the website but you can catch the trailer here:  podcast platform or on the dedicated website at orkneysoundwaves.wordpress.com

The project is supported by the Space through Creative Scotland as part of the Creative Digital Initiative, funded by the Scottish Government.
