Sonica 2018 – Installations

Elizabeth Saint-Jalmes & Cyril Leclerc: Slow Pixel

176 snails will travel to Kings Place to take centre stage in a live sonic installation like no other.  French artists Elizabeth Saint-Jalmes and Cyril Leclerc conduct an immersive sensorial experiment as they harness each snail with a small diode. Slow Pixel highlights Kings Place’s theme of Time and invites the audience to slow down as the snails draw their individual trajectories through this sensory environment.

20 April: 5.30pm – 9.15pm & 21 April: 4pm – 9.15pm, Hall Two
Free to ticket-holders to either Hall One show on this evening. £4.50 to all others and this fee grants admission to all Sonica 2018 installations.


Heather Lander: Nearer Future

‘As though I was locked in an eternal cycle of digital daybreak’ The Herald 

Visual artist Heather Lander and sound artist Robert Bentall collaborate in a translucent virtual reality sculpture which shows where technology has taken us and asks us to question where we might go next. Symmetrical webs and weaves of light build into a crystalline cathedral of light as Bentall’s ambient composition Telian (played on the traditional Swedish nyckelharpa) provides a captivating soundtrack.

20 April: 6pm – 10pm & 21 April: 2pm – 9.15pm, St Pancras Room
Free to ticket-holders to either Hall One show on this evening. £4.50 to all others and this fee grants admission to all Sonica 2018 installations.


Kathy Hinde: Phase Transition 

‘Magnificent’ The Quietus

Kathy Hinde’s Phase Transition is a sculptural sound installation raising awareness of global climate change, filling the space with sonic waves that ebb, flow, rise up and subside in unguessable patterns. Blocks of ice melt at rates determined by real-life climate-change data, their drips resonating in water-filled metal vessels. The dripping of meltwater blends with metallic sounds engraved on vinyl and played on customised turntables which turn faster and slower in accordance with the rate of melt, generating throbbing, fluctuating tones.

20 April: 6pm – 10pm & 21 April: 2pm – 9.15pm, Limehouse Room
Free to ticket-holders to either Hall One show on this evening. £4.50 to all others and this fee grants admission to all Sonica 2018 installations.


Kathy Hinde & Solveig Settemsdal: Singularity

Randomness finds form in this new collaborative work from artist Solveig Settemsdal and musician Kathy Hinde. An isolated point of white light suspended in a void of darkness swells, expands and takes on ever more complex forms before collapsing in on itself and blooming once again into a completely new shape. Kathy Hinde’s music mimics this representation of a coalescing of all matter and all knowledge into a single point, grouping initially abstract sounds – from the violin and prepared toy pianos – into an increasingly organised soundtrack.

 20 April: 6pm – 10pm & 21 April: 2pm – 9.15pm, Wenlock Room 
Free to ticket-holders to either Hall One show on this evening. £4.50 to all others and this fee grants admission to all Sonica 2018 installations.
