University of Liverpool: Open Circuit Festival: Interface Soundscapes
Times: 16:30 - 17:45
Gordon Stephenson Building, University of Liverpool
Please join us for the opening wine reception of Interface Soundscapes – an art/sound installation which will be on display at the University of Liverpool from 2 February through 17 May, 2019.
Interface Soundscapes is a ceramic surface that allows visitors to connect and be transported to different locations in the city, through listening to characteristic soundscapes of Liverpool. These journeys stimulate discovery and provoke reflection on the qualities of the acoustic environment that surrounds us in everyday life, often drowned out and dominated by visual stimulation. This installation is part of the project PlatFORM, which, amongst other things, explores the performative potential of ceramic objects and the way in which ceramic architectures can enhance our experience of space.
Recently exhibited at Tate Liverpool, this installation resulted from a new collaboration between ECAlab (Rosa Urbano Gutierrez and Amanda Wanner), sound artists and researchers Eduardo Coutinho and Ian Costabile (ICCaT), and ceramics artist Edit Szabó.
