Pier to Pier is a public artwork exploring the 14 miles between Brighton Pier and Worthing Pier. RAPT interviewed 14 people who live or work on the coast and worked with a coastal choir to create an immersive sound installation played from an audio bench travelling the Sussex Coast. With Sound Design by Lewis Gibson and Music by Jocelyn Pook.
A sea swimmer, a whale stranding expert, someone who left, someone who stayed, a nurse, a coastguard, a fisherman, a mother, a child, a scientist.
