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

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

Roaming the beach you are accompanied by 24 long throw speakers. Like a siren song, fragments of poems from these speakers will lure listeners along a kilometer long stretch of Irvine beach as darkness falls.

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



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