OPENING SATURDAY 25TH MAY 2013
FROM BIRDSONG TO LIGHT
A solo exhibition of sound installations
by Nicholas G. Brown.
Each work explores medieval ideas about music, especially the relationship between music, science and architecture. The cruciform structure of St. Peter Hungate provides a metaphor for the three-stage hierarchy of music in the Middle Ages. The nave contains the sounds of four birds singing a medieval song. The transept explores the relation between music and the mind, particularly the therapeutic use of music as a kind of medicine. Finally, the chancel contains a twelve-channel sound & video installation that uses the stone tracery of a rose window to give musical form to the sounds of a choir.
