The Tranquil Line – I D Thompson, 2019

The Tranquil Line was initially presented as an installation in the South West Chamber library at Eastbury Manor, Barking in March 2019 as part of the Open Construction exhibition curated by Patrick Morrisey and Hanz Hancock.

The Tranquil Line is a suite of binaural soundscape recordings made on an early Spring walk between the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow and Eastbury Manor House in Barking.

Inspired by the guiding principles of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings founded by William Morris and Phillip Webb in 1877, the recordings highlight points of relative tranquility that still remain along the route.

An interactive map of the route can be found here: http://u.osmfr.org/m/355484/
