Sound artist in residence: Spring to Summer 2023
Richard Sanderson is a multidisciplinary sound and recording artist, record producer and promoter who was the Fourth Portal sound artist in residence from spring to summer 2023.
Richard Sanderson is a multidisciplinary sound and recording artist, record producer and promoter working across multiple music genres and interested in community-orientated approaches to new music. He was a director of the London Musicians Collective for over ten years. He is also a Morris dancer.
Richard oversaw an eclectic range of music for sale in all formats, including vinyl records from classical, spoken word, world music, 60s pop and easy-listening to left-field experimental, improvised music field recordings and sound effects, including recordings sourced from his own collection.
He explored sound through performance. There were field recordings of the tidal aspects of the river and beach, including site-specific open-access performances led by the Hither Green Drone Orchestra on the beach next to the Fourth Portal. The drone sounds mingled with the waves and shingle in an unexpected free public performance.
An indoor performance exploring the sonic possibilities of the Beaufort Scale was open to all musicians, electronics and narrators. Published field recordings of the river and an audio stream offered possibilities for musicians to remix these sounds.
