Our collaborative sound art project is focused on the Falkland Estate in Fife, Scotland (to the north of Edinburgh) and has been slowly evolving following a series of visits over the last year, primarily funded by a research and development grant from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. We are looking to complete the physical production and temporary installation of works on the Estate by the end of next year and will follow that with a publication exploring the processes and ideas behind these pieces, hopefully with contributions from a range of writers. Some brief background, the Estate (comprising about 4,600 acres of mixed woodland, moorland and agricultural land) was originally established as a Royal Hunting Park in the mid-fifteenth century and was a preserve of the Stuart kings up until the seventeenth century. The Royal Palace of Falkland was the country residence and hunting lodge of eight Stuart monarchs, including Mary, Queen of Scots.
