The publication/ vinyl uses the example of ‘airs’, interchangeable melodies from folk songs, that travelled around Britain and were adapted, in search for a way of thinking that addresses mobility, transformation and plurality. In an approach that combines generative electroacoustic composition with instrumental recordings of folk music and critical writing with travelogue, change appears in the gaps between notes and narratives, between people, between spaces and places, words, sounds and topical fields.
