Come and help _underscore as they develop the musical soundscape of a new site-specific opera at the Moseley Road Baths…
In this entirely free event we are opening the doors of the Gala Pool for private sessions of up to 6 members of the public to explore how this unique space behaves when it is animated through sound, which we’ll make using our hands, feet and voices.
Discover space through sound in these 30 minutes sessions as we explore the intimacy of its corners, dialogue with its echoes, murmur with its reverberations.
Through acoustics we unite… our distance may be socially separate but our sounds can come together.
You don’t need swimming costumes, but you may want to take off your shoes and socks for an optional splash!
