Abstract

Tolka Nights was a series of public events that explored the social, historical and
ecological significance of the River Tolka, Ireland. Produced by an interdisciplinary team of six artists, the events took place in three distinct sites along the river in September of 2015. This paper outlines the project with particular focus on the aurally-engaged activities of two members of the artist team: Matt Green’s field recording, film-making and sound installation practice and John D’Arcy’s participative choral workshops and performances.
