Walthamstow Wetlands Walking Composition

As part of our Youth Music Funded Family Jam’s Project during lockdown, Groundswell Arts teamed up with Gail MacLeod and Chiel Busscher from Soundcastle and commissioned the creation of a Walthamstow Wetlands Walking Composition. Be Your own sound explorer and compose your own musical score whilst exploring the wonders and beauty of nature.

Once you’ve downloaded the tracks and are ready to explore, pack a bag and head to the Walthamstow Wetlands for a lovely musical walk.

Items that maybe useful on your walk are: Pens, Pencil, Paper, water bottle, possibly a straw and a recording device.
