A continuous self-vibrating region of intensities - Gail Priest & Thomas Burless

World Premiere

“A refined musical sensibility… reflective, cerebral and moodily introspective…” Igloo Magazine on Gail Priest’s Heraclitus in Iceland (Metal Bitch 005)

Experience an exquisite installation and performance where science, sound and sculpture meet. Inspired by the lesser-known work of pioneering vocalist Margaret Watts Hughes and her invention, the Eidophone (1885), Gail Priest and Thomas Burless have created a collection of sculptures and devices that convert the human voice into a mesmerising display of visual patterns and effects. Each night, vocalists Carolyn Connors and Sonya Holowell join Priest to sing these objects to life, enabling us to hear and see sound at the same time.

Duration: 60 minutes

Warning: The performance may involve haze and flickering lights, and the audience will be required to stand for the duration – please contact Performance Space if you have any access requirements.
