About Weathering Together

Weathering Together is a collaborative, multi-generational community project that gathers the eclectic voices of Weston-super-Mare and explores our ever-volatile weather cycles.

An immersive audio experience has been co-created with community groups by sound artist Joseff Harris, exploring how the natural environment forms our identity and how human impact on the natural world is dramatically changing the landscapes we know and love. It will transport you through vivid memories and nostalgia, but it will also harness the voices of the future and highlight how change must happen now.

Weathering Together can be heard at See Monster, and an immersive version will also tour to the gardens of elderly care homes this Summer and to North Somerset libraries in the Autumn.

An online, digital version will also be coming soon to download from wherever you are!

Joseff Harris is a South-West based composer, sound artist and audio producer working across theatre, film and audio. His work is driven by how sound can tap into our subconscious and carry us to vivid worlds, both real and abstract. The natural world plays an integral role in his work. See Joseff Harris’ website
