ARTIST OPEN CALL: Colony By Alison Ballard and Mike Blow

A group of tactile sonic sculptures, visually at odds with their environment, have invaded Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens.

Vivid blue spheres will be viewable from 12:00 midday. Later on, a series of sonic performances will emanate from inside large spherical forms, resonating upon their surfaces. The first is at 13:40 on the opening afternoon of the festival, and again at 15:40, 19:00, 21:00 and 22:00.

The composition creates a mesmerising movement of sound bringing the otherworldly objects to life and encouraging audiences to roam from sphere to sphere. A soundscape that you can hear, feel and touch.

Produced by Hogarth Productions. Co-commissioned by Hogarth Productions and Oxford Contemporary Music with funding from Arts Council England and Reading Borough Council.
