All Ears

A site-specific performance using the natural resonant frequencies of the room to manipulate the behaviour of sounds and the audiences’ experience of them. Using the unique way in which sound behaves in the space, the piece envelopes the audience within pulsing, ringing and humming sounds of resonance and reverberation weaved throughout a hypnotic musical performance.

Originally a site-specific performance, when the 5.1 recording of the piece is played in other locations it transfers all of the acoustics of the original venue to those spaces, bringing resonance to dampened rooms and space to small environments.

In collaboration with Nick Acons, Jim Walker.

Supported by Arts Council England.
