Sand Pilot

Sound Walk

Sand Pilot is a binaural audio work originally made to accompany the 11 mile Morecambe cross bay walk.

For over 500 years there have been Sand Pilots, officially appointed to guide people across Morecambe Bay’s dangerous quicksands. Cedric Robinson, the current guide, is the last to be appointed and this long line will end with him. Cedric has fished the bay since he was a small boy with his father. Sand Pilot is inspired by him and created from field recordings, interviews and collected archive footage from two years of research and time spent on the bay. It is a reflection on the communities, trades and traditions that will cease to exist within our lifetime.
