Here’s a short video of an interactive sound installation from my recent exhibition, From Birdsong to Light. It shows Medicatio and its companion piece, Chant.
Medicatio allows participants to control the live sound of an automated monochord by vocalizing the same pitch. Chant is a collection of thirty-nine spectrograms that investigates the formation of random vowels over the course of several weeks.
Medicatio / Chant address the use of the voice as a form of healing.
Nicholas Brown’s installation, BIRD CHAMBER (2008) will be on show for the duration of the inaugural, Greenwich International String Quartet Festival (April 17-19, 2009). Recently seen at Kings Place, London, in the context of his installation-performance, AS I HAVE NOW MEMOYRE, the installation will be situated in the Loggia of Trinity College of Music at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

The courtyard of the Said Business School, Oxford is the location for AN AUDIENCE WITH THE TREES. The installation runs from 11-13th June and can be visited between 5.30 & 7.00pm.
