Cryptic: Sound Horn

  • 16 Oct 2021, 11 a.m., Castle Semple Visitor Centre & Country Park, Lochwinnoch, Scotland, UK, None

Repertoire Sound Horn, by Katie Anderson

An opportunity to enjoy a calming, creative exploration of the natural environment, Sound Horn is a cluster of six outdoor copper and aluminium sound sculptures inspired by gramophone speakers. Each of the six emits one part of a field-recorded composition that artist Katie Anderson made during a Cryptic Cove Park Residency. From choral notes, spoken word parts and a bassline hum, visitors can listen to each element in isolation before they combine into one deeply resonant whole sounding from all six speakers at once. A poignant musical promenade through a series of magical soundscapes, this serene, 12 minute sound loop has been described by visitors as “calming, beautiful [and] made me want to stay for ages in the garden and just listen.”
