I will be part of the festival, Invisible Architecture, with the project “The flying ear”.
Running in Newcastle from the 9th September to 11th (three days), Invisible Architecture is “a micro-festival exploring the invisible yet influential substrates of urban existence”, and it is organised by the artist Will Schrimshaw.
This festival hosts a roster of really interesting artists, some of them Culture Lab based, like the same Will Schrimshaw, Lalya Gaye and our special guest Berit Greinke.
The rest of the line up is just incredible and I am really pleased to take part of this festival:

The Flying Ear leads a remote and detached soundwalk of the streets of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Walkers’ ears are stretched above their heads, elevated to new heights with the help of balloons. Walkers are able to explore vertical acoustic spaces otherwise inacessible to the ear (at least without a ladder).
It’s tour based and you need to book it if you are interested to take part (please, it would be awesome and the balloons are really nice!). It will run only on saturday 10th September, from 12 to 14.
An article about this event has been publish on the issue of September 2011 of The Wire.
