« Wave Shift »
Wave Shift is an immersive, abstract, evocative soundscape composition. Source materials for the work include a selection of field recordings captured during the UZ Arts Sura Medura Artist Residency, Sri Lanka and vocal sound recordings. Both the main thread of sound that underpins the work, composed with a series of hydrophone recordings, and the form, which unfolds in wave-like emergences, draw on myriad notions of water as a bridge between real and fictional landscapes.
Nichola Scrutton is a composer, vocalist and sound artist who focuses on distinct but interlinking fields of experimental vocal performance, improvisation, studio sound composition and soundscape, and interdisciplinary collaborations with writers and theatre-makers.
