In Place is an evocative set of songs performed by vocalist Melanie Pappenheim and ensemble with specially created texts from contemporary writers whose work explores a sense of time and place. 

Working in collaboration with Robert Macfarlane, Selina Nwulu, Paul Farley, Nick Papadimitriou, Richard Skelton, Autumn Richardson and Jackie Morris, composer Colin Riley has fashioned a beautiful work for contemporary ears; a unique soundscape of sung melodies, lush orchestrations, field recordings and spoken conversation. Regional dialects and lost words are intrinsic to the fabric of the piece. The end result is a sonorous and unexpected musical exploration of what connects us to our environment.
