Signal-on-sea, Irvine Beach Park, Scotland
15 t/m 25 July 2021

Cryptic connected land and sea with sound in Signal-on-sea, a captivating, boundary-crossing coastal opera set against the transitioning sunset sky.

Roaming the beach, visitors were accompanied by 24 long-throw speakers. Like a siren song, fragments of poems from these speakers lured listeners along a kilometre-long stretch of Irvine beach as darkness fell.

“All of this performed against the beauty of a sunset. Hypnotising.”



Exploring mankind’s never-ending interaction with nature and the sea, the work was also presented as a daytime, environmental installation, Signal-on-Sea, which all beach users could explore. Accompanied by a sonic-tapestry of choral voices, this operatic odyssey made for a memorable maritime adventure for all to enjoy.​
