Circular Thinking at the Workington Hub


Circular Thinking, a new quadraphonic soundwork by Jenn Mattinson and Mark Vernon will be presented on Workington’s outdoor ambisonic surround sound system The Hub this Saturday, 10th October from 1-3 pm.

Over the past year Jenn and Mark have collected interviews and field recordings pertaining to all manner of circular processes, circuits, loops and rotating things throughout the region of Cumbria. The material used in the composition of the piece includes recordings of a potters wheel, a launderette, wind turbines, speedway races, a water mill, bicycle wheels, a clock restorer’s workshop and a tour of the Cranston’s sausage factory where they make the famous spiralled Cumberland ring sausages.

Circular Thinking was commissioned by the Octopus Collective.
