Amie Slavin

Highfields Park Thursday 13 - Sunday 16 September 11am - 5pm (until 8pm on 13 September) October Half-term: Wednesday 24 - Saturday 27 October 11am - 5pm Highfields Park Suitable for All Devised and designed by Sound Artist Amie Slavin, Sound Spiral is a 12 metres long inflatable structure in which 52 speakers are integrally embedded. Amie’s inaugural piece of work for the structure – Babel Spring – is an intriguing and interactive new work with words written by Nottingham based actress and writer Tanya Myers, spoken in 42 different languages. Each of the voices melt and become musical instruments which are exquisitely blended into the piece by composer Duncan Chapman. Audience members are encouraged to add their own contribution to the work through chirruping! For details, click here
