Chorus is a monumental installation of giant sculptures, ‘a choir of spinning sound machines’, created by award-winning artist and a recipient of ‘British Composer of the Year for Sonic Art’, Ray Lee.
Towering above the audience, a series of tripods support rotating arms. At the end of each arm, loudspeakers emit precisely tuned musical tones, singing out to all those present. Tiny lights create the effect of planets in motion, creating mesmerising orbits of colour.
