Witness voice transform into sculpture and visual patterns.
This event has now passed
Experience an exquisite installation and performance where science, sound and sculpture meet. Inspired by the lesser-known work of pioneering vocalist Margaret Watts Hughes and her invention, the Eidophone (1885), Gail Priest and Thomas Burless have created a collection of sculptures and devices that convert the human voice into a mesmerising display of visual patterns and effects. Each night, vocalists Carolyn Connors and Sonya Holowell join Priest to sing these objects to life, enabling us to hear and see sound at the same time.
Gail Priest and Thomas Burless will lead a vibraphonics workshop on Friday 25 October, revealing some of the processes and research they explored while creating this work. Offering ear-opening and hands-on experiences, explore some of the physical properties of acoustic and amplified sound. Open to all levels of experiences: curiosity is the only pre-requisite.
Running time: 60 minutes
The Risky Stuff: The performance may involve haze and flickering lights, and the audience will be required to stand for the duration - please contact Performance Space if you have any access requirements.
Presented at Liveworks by Gail Priest & Thomas Burless and Performance Space
