Explore the sounds of sculptures across campus!

Sound artists, Emma Margetson and Nikki Sheth, combine field recordings with processed sounds to create distinctive soundscapes for sculptures across the University of Birmingham campus.

Each soundscape is influenced by the characteristics and physical properties of the sculptures and serve as a stop-start portal between natural and abstract sound-worlds.

You can stream or download the sculpted sounds at: www.soundcloud.com/sound-sculptures-2018 or download the app, SOUNDwalker from the app store. To take part, you’ll need a smartphone or MP3 player and headphones.

Please note, the works will be uploaded to SoundCloud shortly before the event.
