Memories Unearthed and Korrigan's Lair are site-specific works utilising conventional electroacoustic diffusion techniques (setups of 8 and 16 channel speaker configurations) in previously unexplored ways (outdoor performances, above and underground, floating on, and underwater). Concepts and final works were created in consultation with Salford City Council (Memories Unearthed) and Wired-West (Korrigan's Lair), and were installed and diffused live at Clifton Country Park, Manchester (2009, 2010) and Picton Castle, South Wales (2010, 2011); funders: Salford City Council; Edge Hill University. Developing prior research by Lauke, (‘Music, Space and Theatre: Site-specific approaches to multichannel spatialisation’, Organised Sound 15.3, 2010: 251-259; http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S1355771810000270), the compositions explored the implications of unconventional diffusion system layouts in non-traditional performance spaces significant for heritage and social identity, having multiple uncontrollable factors (eg.acoustics, passing traffic, audience interaction, water movement). The compositions develop and interrogate sonic interventions generated as the 'composer as performer' responds in situ to the environment and also the public.
