Sound Sculptures

Sound artists, Emma Margetson and Nikki Sheth, combine field recordings with processed sounds to create distinctive soundscapes for sculptures across the University of Birmingham campus.

Each soundscape is influenced by the characteristics and physical properties of the sculptures and serve as a stop-start portal between natural and abstract sound-worlds.

You can stream or download the sculpted sounds at:

To take part, you’ll need a smartphone or MP3 player and headphones.
