Illiers-Combray

A multi layered soundscape composition (2 CDs: Irvine) and ornately interwoven visual narrative (2 sided concertina book: Helen Douglas), exploring a sense of memory and place. Inspired in the month of May by a visit to Illiers Combray, the small town immortalized by Marcel Proust in his epic novel In Search of Lost Time, Irvine and Douglas weave together their own distinct mythologies and reveries; their subjective responses elliptically united by their shared sense of place.
It was released as a double mini CD and artist book in 2004 and reworked as a sound walk for the Berwick Film Festival in 2006
