Liminal Routes is a project created by artist and researcher Teresa Dillon and Rhys Ostler-Watts. Conceived as a series of situated audio mixtapes, the project invited DJs whose work contributes to generating the club scene in Bristol by running club nights, record labels, contributing to radio stations or producing music to each create a mixtape for a walking route of their choice in the city, with an accompanying overview that reflects their selection and relationship to and with their local environs.
An intervention and holding space until we meet again - Liminal Routes is an attempt to continue to share good music, support local artists and ground our bodies in the local pathways that have become so vital to our everyday wellbeing. The project features seven artists: Ngaio, Chez de Milo, Ranks, Ellie Stokes, Danielle, Sunun and Tilly and covers seven walking routes which include Blaise Castle, Snuff Mills, Conham, Bedminster and more.
This project was funded by Bristol+Bath Creative R&D programme - a collaboration between Watershed and the region’s four universities; UWE Bristol, Bath Spa, the University of Bath and the University of Bristol- that aims to raise the bar for the region’s creative industries.
