WHISPERING SOUND WORKSHOP
Ian Evans (UK)
Date: 2nd July, Sunday 9h00-18h00
The workshop ‘Whispering’ is an experiment in creating soundscapes to bring the rest of the world to the surrounding area of the installation. It will incorporate a combination of inclusion with the permanent installation and new design of the locale. A literal exploration of sound and environment. This workshop will allow participants to develop soundscapes prior to the event and include them into existing and newly created environments.
