Lowri Harris

Statement

Often encapsulating and atmospheric, this work envelopes the audience in a miasma of anxiety and discomfort. Generating and composing sounds described as 'ambient' and 'otherworldly' which are dynamic and stimulating, the use of sensory deprivation constructs a more intense experience for the listener.

Looking at how the human body reacts to specific aural stimuli and frequencies; this work aims to represent these disharmonious outcomes through composed and constructed experimental and minimalist sounds. The focus of this work is to examine and experiment with how an audience reacts to unknown sounds. Using a mixture of analogue synthesis and digitally manipulated field recordings, the intention is to construct a soundscape.

This work invites the audience to alter their perceptions of sound and become more sonically aware of the environment they are in, where they can participate in a shared perceptual experience.
