‘Listen. Listen now. Listen again to the sounds of this slow-flowing shingle river. Listen to the voices of this untrue island. Listen to the Ness’ (Rob Macfarlane) Untrue Island – A collaboration by Writer Rob Macfarlane, Jazz Musician Arnie Somogyi & his band & Visual Artists Jane & Louise Wilson for a project involving the local community & celebrating the diversity of the Ness. Orford Ness is shrouded in secrets & mystery, it is a haunting strip of marshland off the Suffolk coast and was used by the army to test bombs and spy on the Soviets. It is open to the public but has restricted access. The Island is reached by way of a small boat.
