Change Ringing


Change Ringing

4 Dec, 8pm Change Ringing in the Annex

Change Ringing is a collaborative artwork by artist Peter Shenai & composer Laurence Osborn that forms around a playable sculpture & a large-scale composition. The sculpture incorporates a set of six bronze bells designed & cast by Shenai. Their shapes are mathematically derived from graphic statistical representations of summer temperatures at 17 year intervals over the course of the 20th century. Arranged according to the chronology of their corresponding data sets & struck in order, the bells voice a series of inharmonic spectra that communicate sonically the story of climate change.

Performance of Change Ringing + world premieres by Jonathan Cole, Arne Gieshoff, Edwin Hillier & Aaron Holloway-Nahum
& spoken word performance by John Ashton CBE
