An exciting exhibition of new sound art exploring the relationship between sound and place.
Rogue Wave has collected an array of sounds from environments such as the inside of an ice cube, the depths of a compost heap, a filling bath tub and wide open sandy beaches to make a collection of new immersive soundscapes that take you out of reality and into other worlds. The group uses a 10.2 surround sound system, similar to state of the art cinemas, to envelop visitors with sound.
First Wave: Site and Sound constantly questions the relationship between the listener and the listening space. How do we identify with our surroundings? What does sound tell us about where we are? Consisting of over a dozen pieces of work, including a live performance and an interactive soundscape.
Rogue Wave is a collective of 11 artists based in the North West. www.roguewave.org.uk
