Composed from recordings made during the Sound and Rural Architecture Festival, 9 - 29 April 2012 in the Gralheira Mountain Range, São Pedro do Sul, Portugal. The residency and festival were hosted by Binaural/Nodar who have worked over many years within a context of arts and social engagement.

The Hearth, as the title suggests, is composed from the sounds of burning stoves, fireplaces and pots. My research idea was to go back to the two fundamentals of architecture, the hearth and the altar and consider what might be done with sound. I've explored the sonic environment of the altar in subsequent projects and pieces.

A 3"cd-r with 'The Hearth' and 'Foil' (26 limited edition of 26) are available as a mini (8cm) jewelcase: www.jameswyness.com/contact.html
