Bolthole represents an audio scene or moment in time from a larger work in progress intended for cd/dvd/website release. It was released as a track on a cd compilation of 1,000 copies commissioned by the Vane Gallery as part of their "Otherliness" project\ud \ud This proposal for this starts from the notion of dens, boltholes and hideaways – secret and mysterious places we created physically as children to let our imaginations run wild. This sense of refuge often becomes more emotive and semiotic as we continue to seek these spaces as adults – a virtual pavilion which in times of social compression can enclose, surround and shelter us through subconscious projection.\ud \ud The text for Bolthole describes a field recording at Grindleford staion in the Peak District of a high speed train that enters Totley tunnel. This prompts the memeory of “The Last Train” a tv series (1999) where passengers on a train are put in accidental suspended animation while travelling through the same tunnel and emerge later into a devastated world. \ud \ud This links to my fascination and study of Urban Wildscapes\ud I use specialised recording and playback techniques to document physical environments which can be manipulated to explore the heterotopic nature of space as a sensual and subconscious experience\ud Typically these “sonic snapshots” are accompanied with grid references and photographs/videos web to encourage interactivity from a web-based interactive community.
