'Array' is part intervention, part sculpture, part participatory performance that needs you to make it work! Hand crank the sculptures and then listen carefully... eighty human voices exercising, teenagers harnessing the power of fire and real but fake coded signals are amongst some of the sounds collected during exploratory field recordings in Weymouth and Portland, combined to create evocative soundscapes drenched with the acoustic signatures of the area. 

Using hand held dynamo power to emanate rather than receive sound, the tripodic sculptural works take inspiration from, yet invert the idea of, acoustic field receivers and locators of the early to mid-20th century. Commissioned by b-side and LabCulture.
