A website to document Re-sounding Falkland and accompany the project catalogue.
In the autumn of 2007 we embarked on the research and development phase of a sound-based project on the Falkland Estate, Fife Scotland. Since then we have engaged in three phases of work: Arcadia
(April 2008), an 8-channel audio piece produced for the tapestry gallery in Falkland Palace, Falkland Audiowalk
(July 2009), a pre-recorded MP3 player-based walk around the grounds of House of Falkland and the Maspie Den gorge and, to conclude, Re-sounding Falkland
(2010) a series of sited audio and video installations shown over a weekend in May 2010. These installations included Cascading
, a 6-channel audio piece exploring the alleged ‘tuning’ of the nineteenth century cascades constructed in the grounds of the House of Falkland, Temple of Decision
, a video installation which investigated the ruin of the eponymous nineteenth century folly, and Chase a yard worse than last
, a live work which involved the playing of ‘Real’ Tennis, on the historic court in the grounds of Falkland Palace.
The Re-sounding Falkland
project was supported by: Creative
Scotland, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Falkland Centre for Stewardship
and the University of East London
