Findhorn Bay Arts and Cryptic present… Sound Horn

Like alien flowers, Dumfries and Galloway-based Katie J. Anderson’s Sound Horn is a cluster of six upturned, person-sized gramophone speakers created in copper and aluminium sheet metal and placed around public parks and gardens. Each of the six emits one part of a field-recorded composition that Anderson made during a Cryptic residency at Cove Park: choral notes, spoken word parts, a bassline hum. Visitors can listen to each element in isolation before the elements combine into one deeply resonant whole sounding from all six speakers at once. At first incongruous, these outsized sculptural objects soon direct your attention less to themselves and more to both the visual and the auditory properties of the landscape they have appeared in.

First shown as Wave Decay Sonotorium, Annandale, then at the Sanctuary Festival.

Developed at a Cryptic Cove Park Residency and shown at Sonica Glasgow 2019.
