It seems somehow fitting that I can hear Deborah Humble before I see her. I’m on a street in Newcastle East, below her apartment block, when a mezzo-soprano voice cuts the late afternoon air and shimmers above the sound of the surf tumbling nearby. It is at once a beautiful and surreal experience, as though I’m listening to something that has drifted in from another time and place.
