Nick Ryan Acoustic Labs

Artists: Héloïse Werner, Marie Tricaud, Nick Ryan

Series: Residencies

Ideas explored: developing new work, sound design

Nick’s Residency in February 2020 took place in the historic acoustic laboratory at BT Martlesham Heath, where there is an anechoic and a reverb chamber as well as acoustic and vibration apparatus. Nick is exploring how we create meaning from sound and whether this is measurable. Nick’s collaborators were Marie Tricaud (engineer and designer) and Héloïse Werner (voice artist and cellist). They conducted a series of bizarre, wondrous, and technically sophisticated experiments to measure qualitative perceptual phenomena of listening typically considered to be unquantifiable. Nick’s joy and excitement to be in the lab was infectious, he was like a boy in a sweet shop discovering all the equipment and playing with sounds in exciting and creative ways. Nick is using the results of these experiments to build an interactive sound installation piece.
