“I felt hopeful, surprised, enriched. My favourite part was the filmic quality of the music in the context of people going about their everyday lives on the beach.” Visitor
Using 24 long-throw speakers, Signal-on-Sea connected land and sea with music by interweaving singing with an enchanting soundscape beamed across the beach and overlooking the Isle of Arran.
It was a unique and moving opportunity to rediscover and explore this remarkable landscape with music and texts evoking imagery that enriched the environment around you.
“This was amazing to see last night at sunset! Beach was buzzing with people. Dolphins were in the bay and the soundtrack was playing. It was surreal! Well done – fantastic addition to the beach.” Visitor
Once experienced, never forgotten…
