Opening Day: The Engine Room international sound art exhibition at Morley Gallery (London)

May 12, 2015

A sensory experience of a different kind awaits visitors to Morley Gallery, London between 12 May – 12 June at The Engine Room, its second international sound art exhibition.

22 works from emerging sound artists from Singapore, Russia, Germany, Colombia, Italy, Canada, France, the United States and the United Kingdom have been selected for the exhibition following The Engine Room’s first international sound art competition. Alongside these works will be Aerial Aria in the Aviary, a newly commissioned installation by established sound artist Janek Schaefer.

The Engine Room gives visitors the chance to immerse themselves in soundscapes, watch audio visual works, experience the stimulating interaction of sound and video and observe and interact with sound sculptures and sound installations.

Visitors to the free exhibition will be able to find themselves in a forest of radios surrounded by bird cantatas, witness the subtle cries of a wounded violin or experience a flirtatious dance between speakers, turntables and microphones. The Engine Room sets out to leave visitors with a fresh perception on the sounds that surround them.

Camilo Salazar, Morley College’s Programme Manager for Music Technology and Engine Room curator says: “I am excited to bring these outstanding works from our international sound art competition to Morley Gallery. These pieces make for a gallery experience of a different kind where sound is the main focal point.”

The winners of the competition, selected by The Engine Room’s panel of experts including electroacoustic composer Professor Simon Emmerson and established sound artists Ray Lee and Mira Calix, will be announced on the opening night of the exhibition on 11 May.

The Engine Room is an initiative by Morley College, London, continuing Morley’s legacy as a leading centre for experimental music and sound art. The competition is supported by Sound on Sound, HHB, Academia, Mogami, TC Electronic and Tannoy.
