Barge Horse Walk (3:05)

Cover of Transliteracy

From Transliteracy

The audio piece Barge Horse Walk comes out of Paul Conneally’s collaborative work with social geographer and artist Maurice Maguire ‘Walk the Line’ which in turn forms part of Maguire’s work psychogeographic exploration of Kings Norton called ‘Changing Landscapes’.

The piece features a sample of a small boy on the Walk the Line ‘haiku hike’ where the local community were invited by Maguire to walk the line of the canal tunnel that goes directly under their housing estate.

The line was marked with blue markers some which showed how far in metre the canal was below the participants’ feet. Conneally engaged with walkers grabbing phrases and fragments from them and encouraging them to write haiku like poems.

The audio piece includes the sounds of canal barge engines as they pass through the tunnel.
