Lightvessels (2014) is the third in my series of works that explores maritime soundworlds (following Buoy and Moorings). Lightvessels are unmanned ships that are moored at sea, acting as floating lighthouses, fog horns and weather stations (BBC radio 4 listeners are familiar with the Channel Lightvessel Automatic - one of the reporting weather stations on the dailiy shipping forecast). This work suggests interior and external soundworlds, actions and spaces: the ship’s hull, automated functions, warning sounds and surroundings. Lightvessels was composed in the studios at VICC (Gotland, Sweden) and the University of Manchester (UK).
