#EarBox: 'Night Liminal' to explore the transition from daylight to dusk at Studio 3

14 May 2018

In a first for the ever-developing #EarBox series that brings together music and visual art, the next event on Thursday 24 May features the hypnotic soundscape of ‘Night Liminal,’ an electroacoustic piece by Simon Cummings inspired by the transitional period of Compline, which will be unveiled in the sepulchral environs of Studio 3 Gallery.

Released in 2012, the piece is an enthralling sound-odyssey, a slow-moving exploration of the mystery of the ever-changing moment. Like drifting clouds, sounds blossom gradually, changing as they grow in a way that reflects the creeping changing of shadows as daylight fades and dusk draws on.

The piece lasts just under forty minutes and will unfold against the backdrop of Studio 3 Gallery's new exhibition, ‘Enhancing the Frame,’ which opened last week.

Admission to #EarBox is free, and the event begins at 13.10. Prepare for an  immersive experience of contemplative listening; more details online here:
