“Plas Bodfa” is a 100-year old manor house on the isle of Anglesey in Wales UK. The soundscapes featured in this soundwalk were originally designed as an immersive sound experience for the “Plas Bodfa Continuum” art exhibition at Plas Bodfa in April 2022.

The exhibition’s title, “Plas Bodfa Continuum,” implies a continuous flow of time — ideas and energies from the past, carried into the present and stretched out into the future. Like time, sounds can also be malleable, stretched and compressed, layered and manipulated. The soundscapes created for this soundwalk propose a deliberate engagement with sound and time, using Plas Bodfa’s grounds as a framework.

The sounds featured in the soundscapes are both current and historic and were constructed in the style of musique concrète, utilizing field samples recorded on the manor house’s expansive grounds, while also mixing in samples of vintage ambient sounds from various decades over the past century. Several of the soundscapes also feature samples of traditional instruments used in Welsh music such as the crwth, tin whistle, and fiddle.

The Plas Bodfa Continuum SonicMap uses your smart phone’s GPS to trigger sounds when you walk to different areas on the map, so please make sure to enable location services on your phone. For the best audio experience, listening with headphones or earbuds is recommended.
