Line of Parts at HCMF

I created this piece as part of a programme run by the Centre for Research in New Music at Huddersfield University (CeReNeM) to get more women composers using the their immersive sound system (HISS). It was presented as a multi-channel installation during the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2019, and then released as a stereo mix down on SNVariations in summer 2020. Alex de Little reviewed the piece for Tempo.

I composed it from layered field recordings made in the Cairngorms and my balcony in Finsbury Park, sine tones and humming. The title comes from a poem by Richard Skelton.

NB this scheme ran again in 2020 with Yorkshire Sound Women, and will hopefully become an annual event. Apply!
