Bluecoat is delighted to announce the forthcoming solo exhibition, Euphonia, an ambitious new sound installation by artist Emma Smith which transforms the gallery into a sonic chamber for collective singing. The exhibition launches Thursday 26 April 6pm and runs until Sunday 24 June 2018.
Euphonia is based on the premise that when we engage in friendly interactions — chitchat with friends — we unconsciously make music through interlocking rhythms, pitch and tone. Supported by The Wellcome Trust and working with a team of world experts on psychology, music and the brain, Smith is extracting this music of social communication to create an interactive sound work. As part of this process the artist has created a new form of musical scoring to share the sound of human relationships.
