"The recordings on this disc were made as part of Arika's Resonant Spaces event, a touring project that we ran in summer 2006. Visiting spaces which displayed extreme acoustic properties we asked John Butcher (and sound artist Akio Suzuki) to be informed by the acoustic space they found themselves in. Around the more remote corners of Scotland we presented performances in sites with specific acoustic properties: standing stone circles, a WWII military fuel storage tank, a sea cave, an ice-house, an abandoned reservoir and a mausoleum. (Barry Esson, Arika)"-John Butcher
