#397: 2012.11.18

this edition of framework:afield, entitled diamonds and hoofoil, has 
been produced in the scottish borders by james wyness. notes from the 

Diamonds and Hoofoil is an ethnosonic investigation into equestrian 
culture in the Scottish Borders. As part of a wider collaborative 
project, Fetlock Deep, in collaboration with Claire Pençak, Catriona 
Taylor and Caroline Adam, I spent several months researching my topic, 
gathering field recordings and creating an archive. Selections from the 
archive were played at rural events throughout the summer of 2012 and 
presented at an exhibition in the Eastgate Theatre, Peebles in November 

By means of field recordings, interviews and commentary, Diamonds and 
Hoofoil  examines a range of topics: how we humans and the horse have 
evolved together; the deep bond between us and domesticated animals; how 
we represent the horse.

Thanks to Gavin Millar, Judith, Lucy and Anna King, Les Amis d’Onno,

James Wyness is a composer, sound artist, performer and researcher.

His raw materials range typically from field and experimental studio 
recordings to hand-made acoustic and electronic instruments to found 
objects, which are edited and transformed in the digital domain to 
produce a range of creative outcomes, including composition, 
performance, stereo and multi-channel installation, work for fixed 
medium and digital publication.

As a performing improviser he works with prepared bowed psaltery, 
contact surfaces, vibrating devices, materials and objects.

He is also involved in traditional music both as an accompanist and 
educator, working regularly with the new generation of young musicians 
from 'both sides the Tweed'.

He holds an MA Honours degree in French Studies and a PhD in 
electroacoustic composition from the University of Aberdeen where he 
studied with Pete Stollery.
