I’ve just made a new location composite which expands the way the project works slightly. Pieces #1-3 all use geocaches as score locations, with cachers responding to the aural environment they find themselves in and sending me text descriptions of sounds which become instructions for musicians in the resultant pieces. In the latest edition, location composite #4: The Reading Room, Carrick-on-Shannon, the need to find the score is still central, but the means is different. It’s part of an art trail in the Hunter’s Moon Festival which runs from 23-5 October in Carrick-on Shannon. The score will be placed in a bookshop, The Reading Room, hidden in a book box I made last week out of a copy of Homer’s The Odyssey, which I thought was appropriate. Hopefully the resultant score will be realised n the festival at some point.
