Discover new sonic dimensions
Sound Unwrapped, the 15th edition of our award-winning series, explores spatial dimensions in live performance and the creativity of sound artists. Over 12 months, we shine a light on pioneering artists and composers – past and present – who play with sound and space.
A partnership with d&b audiotechnik allows us to install their state-of-the-art d&b Soundscape in our flexible Hall Two space. d&b Soundscape is an alternative to the traditional left and right stereo system, using 28 loudspeakers in the round to open up a plethora of creative possibilities for artists, including the extension of the 360-surround dimension. Many of our Sound Unwrapped shows utilise this technology (you can browse through the Soundscape shows here)
From acoustic choral works spread around the Hall One gallery to spatialised electronic performances in Hall Two, Sound Unwrapped interrogates the listening experience in new and unexpected ways.
