The soundscape was constructed from fractured, warped, processed and manipulated field recordings made on site, and presented on continuous loop in two channel format at a level where it merged with the natural soundscape of the installation site in Falmer, Sussex. This was accompanied by an arrangement of chalk gleaned from local sites (including those where recordings were made) and a text/image/map assemblage. During the installation, which ran for seven hours, a twenty minute improvised performance occurred alongside and in response to the installation and natural soundscape. This involved additional electronic samplescapes, guitar, voice, and processed amplified bowed chalk/stone.
