Sonic artist Ray Lee – British Composer of the Year for Sonic Art in 2012 – has created the evocative Chorus, a giant sound and light installation which will be located in three different Central Milton Keynes' sites.
Chorus is an impressive series of huge metal tripods with rotating arms which tower above the audience. At the end of each arm, loudspeakers emit a pulsating, harmonic sound and lights create the effect of a whirling swarm of fireflies, or planets in motion.
These intersecting lights trace rings above the heads of the audience, while the combined chorus of the spinning speakers creates a cohesive harmonious whole that is transfixing and uplifting.
Ray Lee will perform in concerts with Kaffe Matthews inside Architects of Air's Pentalum on Wednesday 23 July at 7pm and 8pm. More information here
One Person’s Noise Is Another Person’s Music is a discussion featuring Ray Lee with Professor Allan Cochrane, Kaffe Matthews, Caroline Devine and Dr George Revill on Wednesday 23 July at 1.30pm at MK Gallery. Read more here
