Strange Attractor Event | Sunday 1 March 8pm | £7

St Margaret’s House is pleased to announce Sound Shape, a gallery residency culminating in a live performance event by Tim Vincent-Smith.

Hum a note to yourself.

What is the shape of that sound?

I have no idea. Neither do I know what colour it is.

What if a hundred people read this and hum to themselves? What if they can all hear each other? How does that feel?

When we say that space is in three dimensions what do we mean?

If I throw a bouncy ball at a piano in a gallery is it music or sculpture?

Is it science?


During his residency Tim Vincent-Smith intends to explore aspects of Sound and Shape using gravity, space and chance.

Experiments include the construction of a playable cube out of three upright pianos cut in half front and back, large scale pendular carpet painting workshops and a prototype harmonographic projection machine.

For the culminating Strange Attractor event he will be joined by his acoustic improvisation trio Sink and special guests.
