Future of Sound

Theatre-sized multi-sensory environments, 3D sound, interactive light installations and animated sea beasts are brought together via the cutting edge of audiovisual experiments in the Future of Sound 2009 which launches at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex on 22 November 2008.

Future of Sound is a nationwide tour of immersive performances and creative and participatory presentations by artists, musicians, sound-designers and researchers convened by Martyn Ware founder member of The Human League and Heaven 17 and a leading figure in electronic music.

‘The tour has more in common with a Pink Floyd 1960s Roundhouse experience than any sort of narrative show in the way that rock music used to be experienced before it became commercialised,’ says Future of Sound director, Martyn Ware.  

The tour brings recent innovations and discoveries to a mainstream audience for the first time.

Line Up:

Introducing the Future of Light, the tour will engage light maestro Creatmosphere’s Laurent Louyer in an improvised light and projection show. Having taken part in the world’s major light festivals such as Luminale (Frankfurt) and Arbres Et Lumieres (Geneva), Louyer presents a space-sensitive installation in collaboration with cutting edge audiovisual innovations from Cybersonica’s AV Lab.

Cybersonica AV Lab
Future of Sound tour residents Cybersonica, the leading festival in audiovisual innovation, will present playful and highly experimental sonic artworks which invite audience participation. 

The Sancho Plan
The Sancho Plan have performed at the The Big Chill and Bloom Festivals in the UK and Burning Man 2006 (USA). The band use electronic drums pads to control a cast of interactive animated characters from sea beasts to aliens with a euphoric beat-driven and dystopian post-party ambience.

Tilly Automatic (aka Sarah Nicholls)
Sarah Nicolls is a member of Warp Records’ trio, Alexander’s Annexe, who have performed at Transmedial Festival (Berlin) and Sonar (Barcelona). For Future of Sound, Nicolls links piano and computer to harness the movement of small motors within the piano and translate them into electronic sounds. Sam Meech brings together a combination of hauntingly old and dazzlingly new ambiences in an interactive performance that combines the kinetics of a top hat and live camera visuals. 

D-Fuse & Illustrious
D-Fuse are a group of London-based artists whose multi-dimensional explorations into film, architecture and AV performances have been shown at Sonar (Barcelona), The V&A Museum (London), and TriBeca Film Festival (NYC). In collaboration with Illustrious, they perform Particle, a live audio-visual performance which zooms in on the details of urban life to reveal a web of rhythms, patterns and textures that exist between the real and the virtual.

Tal Rosner
Tal Rosner is the Bafta award-winning filmmaker and graphic artist who turned slow-paced video art on its head to create dynamic, ever-changing motion graphics art. He will be presenting a selection of works to include visualisations of pieces by classical composers and his new unreleased film Without You - an exploration of London’s industrial suburbia, beautifully reconstructed in digital motion.
