A stereo field recording work commissioned by Faber and Faber for a new edition of Holloway by Robert Macfarlane, Stanley Donwood and Dan Richards. The piece is composed of material captured in South Dorset in late April 2013 over a 24 hour period, mapping dusk, night, dawn and day. Within the composition, subtle shifts in perspective and location are heard by utilising multiple microphones recording in synchronisation at different places along the sunken pathway.

'Holloway - the hollow way. A sunken path, a deep and shady lane. A route that centuries of foot-fall, hoof-hit, wheel-roll and rain-run have harrowed into the land. A track worn down by the traffic of ages and the fretting of water, and in places reduced sixteen or eighteen feet beneath the level of the fields.'

In July 2005, Robert Macfarlane and Roger Deakin travelled to explore the holloways of South Dorset's sandstone. They found their way into a landscape of shadows, spectres and great strangeness. Six years later, after Deakin's early death, Macfarlane returned to the holloway with the artist Stanley Donwood and writer Dan Richards.
