Siren Song

Based on the introduction of

Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood

Sound Art


Based on the introduction to Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood, as read by Richard Burton, and Polly Garter's Song. Although this poem is renowned for being long and melodic, I have chosen to take the first few minutes due to its descriptive nature and lack of any human presence. Taking the song of a promiscuous character also ties in with the mythology surrounding sirens on such shorelines as this piece is based.
