Aldeburgh Music, Snape Maltings, 28 – 29 May 2011
For 24 hours, Sound Artist, James Bulley and Software Engineer, Daniel Jones’s Variable 4 used meteorological equipment and software to transform the weather conditions into an orchestral piece of music, projected through speakers integrated into the ground.
Blast Theory with musician and composer, Chris Clark, developed an interactive application that traces your movement. Armed with headphones the audience walked away from Snape and was taken on a journey into a new musical landscape.
A new audio-visual artwork was created and synthesized in a collaboration between musician Bruce Gilbert and Beaconsfield ArtWorks. Using ‘organic’ field recordings and expressive art, the Big Shed in Iken underwent a visual transformation as the sound of the coast illuminated the room.
