Abstract

The author considers the ideas behind her series of temporary audio (and video) installations collectively entitled A Record of Fear, made for the site of Orford Ness on the Suffolk coast. This remote shingle spit was a covert military testing site for much of the 20th century and is now owned and run by the National Trust. The author worked with three sound recordists to capture ambient and "performed" sounds subsequently used in three separate on-site installations. These pieces were a response to both the site's painful history and its current rich soundscape.
