Landscape Quartet was an AHRC-funded project carrying out artistic and philosopical research into environmental sound art. In contrast to a ‘field recording’ approach to the environment, Landscape Quartet devised participative and improvisatory approaches to making sound art in and with the landscape. The paper analayses some of the group’s work from a predominantly phenomenological perspective, and draws on authors from geography, philosophy, and anthropology to interrogate the experiences of working in this way. That landscapes are dynamic and temporal phenomena is congruent with the forms of musical activity, but this congruency is not without its problems. The history of landscape study is highly visually-oriented, and there is a danger of transposing assumptions from visual approaches onto the sonic. However, the paper also refuses a phonocentric approach, arguing that Ingold’s insistence on the intersensorial nature of landscape experience must be held to in order to situate working with environmental sound art.
