Wave Decay: Sonitorium

Summer 2016
Sound and Sculptural Installation
Annandale, Dumfries and Galloway.

Wave Decay Sonotorium was a three day sound and sculptural installation created for Milkbank House, a now ruinous 19th century country house in rural Dumfries and Galloway. Working in collaboration with sound artist and energy healer Justin K Prim, the work was developed over the course of a year in response to the site and an exploration of sine wave tones.

Powered by a custom build multi-channel amplifier and speaker system, Wave Decay Sonotorium aimed to use sound to transform the space and shape the experience of exploration. A series of eight sculptural speakers, were installed throughout the ruined remains, shaping the sound and in turn re-shaping the environment around them.

The installation included a hosted dinner for invited guests to spend a longer period amongst the sound installation, and live performance from Justin K Prim.

Wave Decay is an early development of the piece that has now become Sound Horn. More details on this available here

Wave Decay Sonotorium was made possible with the kind support of DG Unlimited, Dumfries and Galloway Council, The Stove Network, The Holywood Trust, and Robin Bell-Irving.
