Editors' note: The website www.carrlands.org.uk is no longer accessible. There is information about Carrlands on the AHRC Landscape and Environment website.
Carrlands took the form of three, hour-long sound-works / sound-walks inspired by, and created for, the valley of the River Ancholme in North Lincolnshire.
The works could be downloaded as MP3 files for the listener to experience at specific sites in the valley. The three locations, Snitterby Carrs, Hilbaldstow Carrs, Horkstow Carrs, lie in agricultural lands, and Carrlands aimed to enhance public appreciation of that particular landscape by illuminating aspects that do not immediately or easily reveal themselves.
The works wove together spoken text and music and were developed in collaboration with composer John Hardy.
