Echoes in Space - An audio visual installation by George Fisher

5 - 6 and 9 - 13 April

In place of a dissertation BA Media Production students are tasked with creating a unique piece of media content of substantial quality and scope. George Fisher has directed an installation consisting of space themed audio and visuals; featuring a two minute soundscape for each of the eight planets that reimagines the radio frequencies recorded by NASA’s voyager probes over the past 40 years. These soundscapes feature a mix of the Voyager recordings and George's own original contact microphone recordings, blurring the lines between what is real and what is constructed.

The soundscapes will be played through an audio fader interface allowing the viewer to listen to and/or mix and match the audio as they wish. This will be coupled with surreal planetary visuals that will be projected into the space.

Where: Atrium Gallery, Poole House, Talbot Campus
When: 5 - 6 and 9 - 13 April, weekdays only, 9am - 6pm
Open to all, free admission.
