Since February 2020 an interdisciplinary research team from Newcastle University funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) have been examining archive material held at RAF Fylingdales as part of a significant research project. This project aims to turn RAF Fylingdales inside out, making its practices and functions visible and demystifying its operations in space monitoring and ballistic missile early warning.
Set within York’s Cold War Bunker, maintained by English Heritage, will be an audio installation which will utilise multiple speakers to activate the properties of the bunker itself. I’m very excited to be involved as a sound consultant for the event installation which will take place later this Summer. More details to follow….
