Uncoupling / Coalesce is an 8 minute acousmatic composition used in a 16 speaker diffusion performance.


The composition takes inspiration from the dissociating, hypnotic qualities of the ocean that surround the south coast of Cornwall. It relies heavily on field recordings - using, hydrophones, binaural, electromagnetic, contact  and parabolic microphones  - taken across Kernow - boat chimes, dockyards, whirls of water in piddock holes and zawns,  farming machinery, latches, abandoned gunpowder mills, waterfalls and resonant underpasses - processed to  communicate the  spatial, emotional and temporal shifts that may occur when transfixed on the water. (2015)
