Silent Sound in Liverpool. UK.


Artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard invite you to a uniquely immersive 
experience which explores the mind's susceptibility to subliminal 

In 1865 Victorian performers The Davenport Brothers presented a public 
séance from inside their spirit cabinet on the stage of the Small 
Concert Hall in St. George’s Hall, Liverpool. Unused for over twenty 
years the Hall will reopen for Silent Sound where the artists will 
perform on the same stage used by The Davenports.

The evening will be introduced by Doctor of Parapsychology Ciarán 
O’Keeffe and will debut a specially commissioned original score written 
and performed by Jason Pierce of the band Spiritualized.

The performance takes place during the Liverpool Biennial on Thursday 
14th September 2006. For more information regarding obtaining tickets 
for the performance please email: tickets at silentsound.info.

 >From Friday 15th September Silent Sound will feature in the inaugural 
programme at Greenland Street, A Foundation's major new contemporary art 
space - three former industrial buildings in the heart of Liverpool's 
Baltic Triangle which have been transformed into one of the largest and 
most challenging exhibition spaces for contemporary art in the country.

An ambisonic audio recording of the live performance created in 
collaboration with Arup Acoustics will be incorporated into a 
large-scale immersive installation specifically created by the artists 
to continue the event's exploration of the mind's potential 
receptiveness to suggestion. The recording will be reproduced in the 
installation to three-dimensionally reproduce the sound as it was 
actually heard in St. George's Hall.

A limited edition signed and numbered Compact Disc recording will be 
available from Monday 18th September, with a DVD documentary to follow 
in 2007. All graphic design for the project has been executed by Chris 
Bigg and Vaughan Oliver at v23.
