Using 20 long-throw speakers spread over 1000 metres, Signal-on-Sea connects land and sea with music by interweaving singing with an enchanting soundscape beamed across the beach and overlooking the North Sea.
“I felt hopeful, surprised, enriched. My favourite part was the filmic quality of the music in the context of people going about their everyday lives on the beach.” Visitor at Irvine Beach
“This was amazing to see last night at sunset! Beach was buzzing with people. Dolphins were in the bay and the soundtrack was playing. It was surreal! Well done – fantastic addition to the beach.” Visitor at Irvine Beach
The installation is open Friday 20 – Monday 23 May & Wednesday 24 – Sunday 29 May, 2pm – 8pm.
Once experienced, never forgotten…
Signal in Kaunas
Kaunas in Lithaunia is Cultural Capital in 2022. In August we perform our landscape opera Signal the last weekend of 3 weeks ConTempo festival in the city heart, inviting people to go out in the rural countryside and experience this work.
The first weekend of July Neumünster Abbey houses the Rocking Chairs for a young audience at the Big Bang Festival, a festive ode to adventurous music and sound art.
Signal in Groede
At the core of this work is the connection between audience, sound and music, and the market square located in the old center of Groede, located in West Zeeland Flanders.
A Landscape That Is Us
We are very honored to be featured again at this wonderful festival with our new project 'A Landscape that is Us'. A new immersive experience in which we combine several techniques we developed for our deep practice in creative placemaking investigating and experimenting with sound, space and public engagement.
Signal at Dusk
For the Norfolk and Norwich Festival we have composed a new live performance version of our landscape opera Signal. Beginning at dusk our 4 sopranos lead the audience along the shoreline bidding farewell to the sun on the horizon and signalling the arrival of the night.
Great Yarmouth beach will be transformed with sound. S&VR’s bespoke digital technology and twenty long throw speakers create a unique audio experience enabling visitors to the installation to experience the vast seascape afresh and in their own way.
