The foghorn requiem was performed on 23 June 2013 on a cliff top in northeast England. The full write-up and essential links from Robin Thefog is here – Robin and I met before the event then each went about our own recordings. Here’s my edit, 12 minutes with a secondary focus on the other sounds present.


The perspective is facing to sea, quite removed from the foghorn and brass band – the brass band at the beginning is a guide to the loudest parts of this edit, though most are much more quiet.

The requiem was created by Lise Autogena, Joshua Portway and composer Orlando Gough. This is an edit of by me of a field recording of their work, so consider copyright appropriately – this is a field recording, the music is theirs! The official website of the performance is here.
