Site Singing

Ellen Southern July 3 - 8 Open daily: 10am - 6pm ellensouthern.co.uk/

An exhibition of a project in progress. Since last summer Sound Artist Ellen Southern has visited a variety of heritage sites within a day of Bristol by foot and public transport. At each site she has experimented with her own voice and the acoustics of each space, using her voice to vocalise, or give voice to, these sites. These sound sketches, created from recordings made at these sites will be downloadable by the public: with the aim of contributing to the visitor interpretation of and encourage engagement with, these lesser known English Heritage sites.

The exhibition will offer the opportunity to hear the sound works, with varying combinations presented each day, and discuss their making with Ellen.
Drawings and photographs from the field trips will be exhibited alongside the sound works.
