Immerse 2012

A soundscape installed into the waiting room of Durham train station for the duration of BRASS 2012

BRASS Durham International Festival 6 -22 July, 2012

Surface Area Dance Theatre in partnership with media artist Benjamin Freeth created Immerse as an alternative to tradition. Intricately placed brass sensors were attached to Nicole’s body, listening to muscular tensions. What is heard are a series of recorded captions, translating internal dance movement to sound.
Through a process of devised experiments Nicole and Benjamin used the brass sensor technology to create a unique musical score. An immersive audio landscape where waves of sound wash over and beyond, traveling and connecting to the listening audience.
