An absorbing sound art installation will transform the Market Place on the last bank holiday in May.
A series of industrial giant towers hold suspended bell-like speaker cones, as they gradually swing higher and higher until each arm soars up over the heads of the audience.
Ringing forth with a peel of electronic tones that combine into a transfixing harmony of pulsing drones, Ring Out continues the work of multi-award winning composer and artist Ray Lee, whose distinctive combination of sound and kinetic sculpture has thrilled audiences the world over.
The audience are able to walk around the space and experience the series of micro-melodies shifting and changing as the piece progresses.
Ray’s monumental outdoor work Chorus premiered in Newbury in 2013 and has since been touring nationally and internationally.
Ring Out has been commissioned by Oxford Contemporary Music (OCM) and is part of PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial
