Soundwalks & Acousmatic works

Machair (2022) This soundwalk explores the traditions and ecology of Uist’s machair. A Gaelic word meaning fertile, low-lying grassy plain, machair is one of Europe’s rarest yet most species-rich habitats; only occurring on the exposed west-facing shores of Scotland and Ireland. Generations of low-intensity farming have shaped this unique landscape and encouraged wildlife over millennia. Developed in partnership with the local community, this work combines spoken narratives, field recordings, and compositions with archival sound recordings from Edinburgh University’s School of Scottish Studies, that chart over 70-years of recorded history.


Orasaigh (2023) launched in November, this 45-minute soundwalk features poet Steve Ely reading his eponymous poem inspired by the landscape of the South Uist tidal island of Orasaigh. Mapped to a coastal walk around the island, this binaural work features original compositions with soundscapes captured on location in surround sound. Folks can experience this geolocation work on location via Echoes, or at home on SoundCloud.
