Sacred Spaces is another unique project by Cities and Memory that explores and reimagines the sounds of churches, temples, mosques, cathedrals, natural environments and other sacred spaces.
The project examines the critical role that sound has played in spiritual and religious life for many thousands of years, and the similarities between how sound is used across the world’s religions and sacred places.
My contribution to the project is the piece Sacred Signals which takes as its start point a recording from the Sadan Cave in Mynamar. The piece picks up on interference signals heard from mobile phones and other hand-held devices as people visit the caves captured in the source recording. You can listen to Sacred Signals and a number of other works as part of this project at the Cities and Memory project site here.
