Listening Cave - Calum Scott

Calum Scott is a sound artist from Aberdeen, Scotland currently undertaking AHRC funded doctoral research at the University of Glasgow. His research focuses on the development of object based sound art works (or sound sculptures) which seek to interrogate links between sound and the physical world.

Calum's sound practice involves the creation of electronically actuated physical objects and assemblages that produce raw/acoustic sound. It stands in contrast to acousmatic sound work by using technologies of sound reproduction as acoustical motors which produce sound rather than as transparent media which carry it. A key methodology in his work is the recreation of existing sounding objects as stimulus for his creative process. This form of ‘creative media archaeology’ seeks to explore aspects of the historical through a creative reengagement with objects.

Calum's work has been exhibited by the Courtauld Institute/ Aberystwyth University (Noises of Art conference), the Hunterian Art Gallery, Queens University Belfast (Sonorities Festival) and Leith Theatre (Hidden Door Festival).
