about

Written by Justin Hopper, music by Scanner, intro/outro by Lost Harbours; readers: Stuart Bowditch, Adrian Green, Lucy Greeves, Justin Hopper, Syd Moore, Ray Morgan, Jo Overfield

Public Record: Estuary is an album of poetry based on archival reports of Victorian sea disasters along the shoreline of Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, in the Thames estuary. The work is written to be listened to while walking the old town of Leigh (using the downloadable map), but work well as stand-alone pieces, too.

Public Record: Estuary portrays a place built of the in-between: Neither river nor sea, city nor countryside, ancient nor modern. It is a portrait of transition - a transition begun in the 19th century, but with eerie echoes in today's battles over the estuarine environment.

This piece was commissioned by METAL Southend-on-Sea, and debuted in November, 2013, as part of Shorelines: Literature Festival of the Sea. The piece is free to download (also available as lower-quality MP3s via Soundcloud), though donations are very welcome.
