A powerful immersive sonic experience of suspense and shifting sounds

27 & 28 October: open from 4pm-8pm: FREE


A captivating sound-world that comes alive through an ever-changing outdoor live performance. Using an ensemble of visually striking ‘instruments’ – gongs, bells, whistles and explosive events - Warning Notes gives a voice to the social and ecological alarm rippling across our planet.

A new show by international artist Mark Anderson that is improvised and responsive to audience and environment, Warning Notes is playful and hypnotic, inviting us to listen to the present and contemplate both personal and global stories – and our future together.
