Earth Sounds – live art installation & dance performance

1 -5 February 2016

Lower atrium, The Sir Ian Wood Building, RGU.

Imogene Newland & Ross Whyte

The live art installation Earth Sounds will explore soil as a medium of vibrational transference connecting the physical body to the earth and the sonic space of the city beyond. Within this framework, the performers will explore the choreographic potential of the female body and the medium of soil as a metaphor for fertility, destruction and transformation.

Using contact microphones and geophones placed within a mound of soil, beginning with the minute sounds of the dancer’s movements beneath the soil, the soundscape gradually expands to pick up low frequency reverberation of the city. The project will  explore potential interactions between earth, movement and sound.

The residency will culminate in a FREE performance of the work at 7.30pm on Friday 5th February in the lower atrium, The Sir Ian Wood Building, RGU.
