Dr Peter Consistently Falconer is a UK-based sound artist and composer, originally from Hartlepool.
His work frequently combines music, sound design, narration, historical research, and sonic journalism to tell accessible, parafictional stories about both our own and possible alternative realities.(what is parafiction?)
Peter studied composition at the University of Southampton with Matthew Shlomowitz and Drew Crawford, producing seatonsnook.com, an online archive of sounds and music documenting the history of a County Durham seaside resort called Seaton Snook, from its establishment in medieval times to its sinister vanishing in the late 1960s.
