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.

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.
