Landscape art


The Sound Lines project was developed as a commission for Fermynwoods Contemporary Art as part of Open Online 6 ‘Too Long for ITunes’. It consists of a 45 min audio track and accompanying map. Each section of the track is the same length as those of the walk. The sounds and music have been developed from original field recordings of the park and electro-acoustic compositions representing observations of the forest area.

Instructions for experiencing the Sound Lines audio map/album were promoted through digital means via the Fermynwoods digital exhibition platform for Open Online 6 launching 01 Jan 2016. The artwork can only be fully experienced by visiting Fermyn Woods Country Park  The audio map/album was downloadable as part of Open Online 6 or via scanning a QR code image left at the location.

The project also involved walking workshops in sound recording at the site.

A sample of the tracks can be found here
