north east scotland's festival of new music

James Wyness

James Wyness is a composer and environmental sound artist based in the Scottish Borders. In his live work he combines layered field recordings and sonic interventions in the landscape with the live manipulation of found objects to create a series of fabricated environments. A constantly shifting mass of natural elements in motion contrasts with representations of wide open spaces, ambiences in which native sounds and human interventions merge, inviting the listener to navigate through deeper listening the time and space of the work. A downloadable excerpt from his latest CD release, figure and ground, a 42 minute extended mix of environmental field recordings and processes, can be had at
