Ikon Gallery is presenting some great sound art at the moment. I recently wrote about the Florian Hecker exhibition at Ikon Eastside which is well worth seeing; and looking at their forward programme there are more exciting things to come! On 12 June, they present a piece at Pershore Street Car Park by Oliver Beer. Beer has worked on a series of films, sound pieces and performances that use the human voice to stimulate architectural spaces. The Resonance Project has taken place in buildings such as the Pompidou Centre, Paris (see video above) and Modern Art Oxford. Every building has its own particular frequencies at which it will resound like a wine glass sings at the tip of a finger. Singers from Ex Cathedra will create music from these resonant notes, harmonising with the brutalist architecture of the car park.
The performance will take place at 5pm and is FREE. Address: Pershore Street Car Park, Pershore Street, Birmingham B5 4RU.
