Call for Assistance
Cornerhouse and Sonic Arts Network are seeking artists and students of sonic art to assist in the staging and presentation of Staalplaat Soundsystem's The Ultrasound of Therapy.
Inspired by the ancient French hospital 'La Salle des Malades" the installation mimics a clinical environment. First visitors details are taken, then they will be admitted to a cubicle, complete with hospital bed, where artist 'doctors' and 'nurses' will treat their 'patients' with personalised sound therapies, ranging from relaxing, and energising to slightly disturbing. In addition to the individual therapeutic sounds, an overall acoustic is created for the whole space, unifying it into one immersive sound installation. This sound will be transmitted to radios mounted in the space, speakers in the room and to special bass shakers mounted under the beds.
The installation will be launched at Cornerhouse on the 23 June to coincide with the launch of SAN Expo festival (23 June - 26 June). It will then run until the 30th July.
Cornerhouse and Sonic Arts Network are calling for volunteers to act as
'doctors' and 'nurses' during the installation's run.
Volunteers will be 'trained' during the Expo festival by members of Staalplaat Sound System.
This is a rare opportunity to be involved in the staging of the UK debut of The Ultrasound of Therapy, an installation which is sure to make a huge impact as part of Cornerhouse and SAN's international exhibition of sonic
