Euphonia is an interactive sound installation based on artist Emma Smith’s research into the musicality of human communication.
Written like a game of consequences -where any part can seamlessly play into the next – the musical score provides around 2,200 years of unique sound, the order of which is determined by those present.
In this way, the work invites visitors to become part of the installation; to add their own voices to the space and, in doing so, to author the score itself. Euphonia celebrates all voices as musical and sees music as inherent to human communal life.
This presentation of Euphonia has been specially reconfigured for the modernist interior of Holy Trinity and St Augustine of Hippo.
Positioned on pews and in conversational clusters, the speaker heads are poised to enter into dialogue with those who encounter them.
