Between 13 - 16 April 2017 Jean Martin and Julian Weaver staged a live-streamed sound translocation from Brighton to La Rochelle in France as part of the ZERO1Festival des Arts et Cultures Numériques (programme as en français pdf). This sound translocation transmitted live soundscapes from two locations in Brighton, UK (a pub and a viaduct) to the ancient harbour tower Tour de la Lanterne in La Rochelle. These live soundscapes were enhanced by a number of pre-recorded sounds and statements by French people living and working in the UK (diffused in a 12-channel sound installation) in order to create a hyperreal soundscape of England as sonic presence in La Rochelle. After the referendum in June 2016 we are reminded of the UK’s so-called ‘splendid isolation’ policy of the late nineteenth century. Sound Little Island is an attempt to subvert these isolationist tendencies: by transmitting the everyday (the ultra-ordinary) punctuated by French lives abroad, we aim to create awareness and highlight the connections between people here and there.
