Composer: Christopher Fox

The great stone circles of these islands – Brodgar (Orkney), Drombeg (Ireland), Stonehenge (England) – are gatherings of material that made extraordinary spaces in which, so archeology suggests, there were festivals, rituals, performances. Other times, other places does the same, but gathering sounds rather than stones: field recordings from different locations around the British Isles that gradually move through the concert space. 
 
Other times, other places can be experienced either as a sound installation in its own right, or as the setting for live performances of composed and improvised music. The work is a collaboration between the composer Christopher Fox, the improvising musicians Angharad Davies and Tom Jackson, and the composer/sound designer Georgia Rodgers. Field recordings are mixed and diffused through the space to produce an hour-long installation which listeners can inhabit or pass through as they wish.
