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.
