In 2014, the Resono project was set up to study a number of highly reverberant locations around Scotland, with the aim of exploring and experimenting with the sonic qualities and possibilities offered by each. Research for the project took place in spaces including a water reservoir, giant sea caves, oil storage facilities, an abandoned munitions factory, an early 19th century ice house and a cathedral. Among them was a 200 feet tall disused concrete silo, built in 1964 by the British Sugar Corporation to store sugar beet, but abandoned just eight years later. With the exception of a brief revival in the early 2000s for grain storage, the structure has remained empty. The extreme acoustics exhibited by Cupar Grain Silo are an accidental artefact of it’s ambitious industrial architecture, with a reverberation time approximating 36.5 seconds. Using impulse responses made within the structure, bespoke music was produced, sympathetic to these acoustics. These compositions were then reamplified back into the space in front of a live audience on Saturday 21 May 2016. Resono was supported by New New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund with investment from Creative Scotland.
