BBC Radio Solent Interview: Land Bone Stone APPs [SATSYMPH]

A new smartphone app designed to help you explore a stretch of Dorset as important as Stonehenge. Composer Marc Yeats gives us a tour around Bronkham Barrows near Hardy’s Monument, Dorset. Created by Steve Harris for BBC Radio Solent’s ‘Breakfast in Dorset’ Broadcast 07.23 on 19th August 2016. This app delivers an immersive sound experience to explore whilst on the move on and around the South Dorset Ridgeway. It is so much more than ‘just’ an audio-trail: it is a cultural-historical, archaeological, artistic, community, folklore and oral tradition response to the South Dorset Ridgeway and her deep history.

for Kingma System Quartertone and open-holed Alto Flute. Dedicated to and commissioned by Carlton Vickers. Duration: circa 20 minutes.

I gratefully acknowledge the recording and videoing of this premiere by James Praznik, Presenter and co-director of New Music Brandeis. “Streaming” presents a serene array of pools, each containing suspended quantities of crystalline particles. Global tempo composites equate to relative fluid motion, influencing local activity, while the arrangement is held in stasis”.
