Sound artist and composer Ray Lee, renowned for creating music for public places, will create an outdoor musical and visual spectacle composed for electronically generated bell sounds, each swinging from a giant metal tower. The composition builds a series of tonal pitches into a constantly evolving texture of pulsed tones created by the swinging of the bell-speakers by a team of local bell-ringers. The audience are able to walk around the space and experience the series of micro-melodies shifting and changing as the piece progresses.
Ring Out will be performed at two showcase weekends for the New Music Bienniel: Hull UK City of Culture and the Southbank Centre. It will also be performed at Newbury with Corn Exchange Newbury.
