I took part in the first 'murmurations' residency 2018, exploration of all aspects of located sound (sound art, field recording, acoustic ecology, sound design, soundscape, sound installation & diffusion etc), coordinated by Jez Riley-French and Chris Watson. The location was Glenshee Scotland, on the edge of the Cairngorms, a rich source of inspiration, listening and recording possibilities. In addition there were enough international experts to discuss and share knowledge around the subjects of located sound, acoustic ecology and contemporary sound practice in its varied forms. It was a research and development residency, which I undertook as an enquiry into professional methods of recording sound in England and Africa and presenting as public sound art installations.
