The Sound of Lochaber

Produced by Mark Vernon and London Fieldworks.

'The Sound of Lochaber' is a distillation of a six-part radio series by 
the same name originally created for 'Remote Performances' - a daily 
live broadcast on Resonance 104.4fm. Each days schedule was relayed live 
to London by satellite from 'Outlandia', a unique artists’ field-station 
in Glen Nevis, Lochaber, Scotland. The Sound of Lochaber merges field 
recordings and voice interviews into a radiophonic soundscape intended 
to capture creative interactions with the land, its history and people 
and tensions between nature, industry, tourism and heritage. It also 
serves as a timely reflection on contemporary ideas of remoteness.

Recordings used in the creation of this piece included:

The Jacobite steam train from Mallaig to Fort William; interior 
recordings in carriages, out of the windows, rattling tea cups in the 
first class compartment, metal bins, close-up of the plughole in the 
toilets, exterior close-ups of the engine and steam valves.

The Rural Education Centre, Torlundy, Fort William; butter churns, Lola 
the artificial cow, bee smoker, cow bells, metal bucket, children singing.

The Arisaig Highland Games; bagpipers, laser clay pigeon shooting, 
running races, fair games, musicians warming up, highland dancing 
competition and P.A. announcements.

Duck breasts smoking at the Glen Uig Smoke House, the dying embers of a 
wood fire, ‘Cheep’ the bantam hen chick pecking at bread crumbs, the 
‘singing sands’ on the beach of Loch Ailort, workmen hammering, an 
idling train at Mallaig station, zip slides at Nevis Range, the Nevis 
Range mountain gondola, water lapping the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch 
Ailort, paddling a canoe in the sound of Arisaig (hydrophone and stereo 
recordings), swallows feeding their young, loading whiskey barrels onto 
a cart and vehicle reversing beeps at the Fort William Distillery, 
cockerel crows, feeding chickens and other farm animals, the Glencoe 
sheep gathering, the song, ‘The Lochaber Gathering’ played by local 
musicians, mountain streams at Glencoe, domestic boiler, rain falling on 
contact mics, the Rio Tinto Alcan Hydro pipe at Kinlochleven (including 
contact mic recordings), water pipe outflow into the river Leven, 
washing machine end cycle.

This programme also featured the voices of: Charlie MacFarlane, Isobel 
Campbell, the tour guide at the Fort William distillery, Paolo Beradelli 
and Ingrid Hendersen.
