As part of SARC's Sonorites Festival, Framewerk hosts, in its wonderful environ, an installation from Calum Scott. The piece is set to run from April 18-21, with a talk from the artist at 2pm on Saturday 21st.
Using the Japanese Suikinkutsu (water koto cave) and Shishi-odoshi (scare the deer) as initial points of departure, this sound sculpture aims to engage with these examples of traditional ‘sonic engineering’ through a process of media archaeological resynthesis and explore the acoustic potential of water as a sculptural material. Calum is a sound artist from Aberdeen, Scotland currently undertaking AHRC funded doctoral research at the University of Glasgow. His practice focuses on the development of object based sound art works (or sound sculptures) which seek to interrogate links between sound and the physical world.
