Call for audio contributions to White Horses app and installation

Following the development period currently underway, artists Ali Pretty and Richard White will curate a walk and create an installation. The 100 mile walk to the white horses takes place over 5 days in August arriving into the Devizes Carnival on Bank Holiday Monday.  At the Wiltshire Museum there will be an installation featuring silk paintings by Ali Pretty based on her response to walking Wiltshire’s White Horses; a virtual layer unites the walk and the installation holding the potential for a legacy app and more.


This is what we are looking/listening for....

.... individual sound pieces for each of the 8 white horses.

Could be:

Soundscape. Songs. Fanfares. Musique concrete. Spoken word.

A series of single items reflecting single points or stages on a spectrum:

enclosure, threat, loss, grieving


opening, release, energy, discovery, freedom


transcendence, self actualisation, confidence, calm

This audio content will be used either at the white horses or in the installations or both.

Join the June walks!
