MIKE PARR BURMAN

Double Mountain

A collaboration with multimedia artist Emma Finn and fellow sound designer Mike Fowler, Double Mountain was commissioned by the Edinburgh Art Festival as part of the Improbable City programme 2015, and exhibited in a custom shop front within the St James Centre, Edinburgh.


Supported by the Scottish Government, Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund and St James Centre. Finn’s newest work is situated in the mountains, places which by their very nature create boundaries and divide up space. The ‘Marks’ are currently up in the mountain, dwelling on how to get out of broken cable cars, find their lost tickets and making endless paper airplanes. The air is thin and they move slowly and quietly; the mountain itself is making all the noise.

All sound design and recording was done collaboratively between Mike Fowler and myself, including both a stereo and 5.1 surround mix.
