I've long had a fascination with composing for and recording musicians in landscapes and large architectural spaces. 

one aspect of these pieces is the placing of musicians in locales at a distance from the audience, with the performances working at the edges of audibility - as with 'score for a locale' and numerous examples of 'scores for listening' featuring the instruction that any performed sounds should rest alongside those of the locale.

Over the years performances of these pieces (often based on photographic or instructional scores) have taken place in UK, Portugal, Italy &  Japan
