Lost Chord is a social musical work currently being researched. Sets of organ pipes are carried through the landscape, each pipe resonating with its own voice. It is a relational work at both a sonic and human level with the drift of travel, the constraints of landscape, the labour of the task and the collective process of the group all determining the nature of an unrepeatable band of sound. The work exploits the psychoacoustic effect of the drone on the carrier and the observer alike and inevitably, while taking place in the secular world, has magical and religious resonances.
