‘Towering Parley’ takes the form of a ‘topogram’ that appropriates Kent dialect words chosen for their sonorous qualities as much as their description of the topography & biophony of the sea, shoreline and sea wall area that stretches from Whitstable Harbour to The Neptune.

The work is situated site-specifically, in the window of Whitstable Marine, along The Sea Wall. The text has been composed to be uttered, or ‘Zang’, as well as read.

This piece forms part of a body of work by Jane Pitt that combines site-specific sound mapping, local dialect research, field recording and vocalising to create soundtracks and text based works.
