Show 102: Floors We Have Known by Lucinda Guy and Alexander Paterson

Produced by Lucinda Guy and Alexander Paterson.
“Originally we thought about doing a dance/movement piece for radio, but as we worked we became more interested in the variety of sounds the floors here make. Some of the studios we recorded in have been here for decades, as part of Dartington College of Arts which was formed in 1961. The college is now to be closed down, or move 80 miles to merge with a larger institution. It’s the smallest academic institution in England and is no longer considered viable. This piece is a homage to the floors of Dartington with their unique creaks and squeaks, and to a college which could not be replicated anywhere else.”
