these have taken the form of the pieces:

island | fjorar (resonant silica)

'island | fjorar (the sound of the world turning)'

'island | fjorar (dissolve)

'island | fjorar (star farm)'

'island | fjorar (score for listening)'

'island | fjorar (glacial objects)'

'island | fjorar (bethlehem wires)'

island | fjorar (geothermal activity)'

and the forthcoming release of a book of scores for listening alongside text pieces by Pheobe riley Law and an archive of several hours of recordings & selected sound works

the work involves the use of JrF geophones, hydrophones, contact mics & coils along with ultrasonic detectors and of course approaches to durational listening, intuitive and extended recording techniques.
