Saffron’s Soundbench at is possibly the world’s first solar energy powered, sound bench in the world!
Saffron was artist in residence at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve near Rye for a year in 2006/7
Each month she recorded the sounds of the Nature Reserve throughout the seasons. She blended the sounds of terns, lapwings, wrens and starling calls and songs with her own music. One track is devoted to the story of the Blue Boulders and includes local voices.
It has become a popular venue for visitors to the reserve and has been featured on radio and television.
