Aether & Hemera have been selected to participate in Durham Brass:2012 Festival. Which is your brass voice? Interactive light and sound installation, was chosen from a highly competitive listings of more than 40 artists for the festival which will focus attention on the creative exploration of Brass culture and music in Durham.
BRASS: DURHAM INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 2012 will takes place from 6 - 22 July 2012.
Which is your brass voice? is an interactive installation employing new technology and new media to create a widely accessible and engaging multi-sensory experience for festival audiences.
Sited in a busy high street location, the installation invites people to discover their brass voice by speaking, singing, shouting or whispering into microphones set on stands within the space. Capturing the individual nuances of volume, pitch and the intonation of people’s voices, sound is translated in real time to produce the corresponding sounds made by different brass instruments. These brass sounds outputted through surrounding speakers are at the same time synchronised to localized coloured LED lights and light projections within the space to create a fully immersive experience for visitors.
