Beyond text?

Peter Cusack

Manchester University Press

Sounds from Dangerous Places is a long-term, multi-sited project to explore the soundscapes of sites of major environmental damage. This composition takes the form of a poetic reverie about the human and environmental legacies of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which is played out resonantly at a multi-species level as well as through voice and song. It asks the questions: ‘What can we learn of dangerous places by listening to their sounds?’ and ‘What insights can sound offer into the relationship between the environment and the social and political contexts of a ‘dangerous place’?
