Staalplaat Soundsystem: The Ultrasound of Therapy

Sound/performance collective, Staalplaat Soundsystem give visitors the chance to experience a unique, personal sensory experience in The Ultrasound of Therapy.

Inspired by the ancient French hospital ‘La Salle des Malades” the installation mimics a clinical environment.  First visitors details are taken, then they will be admitted to a cubicle, complete with hospital bed, where artist ‘doctors’ and ‘nurses’ will treat their ‘patients’ with personalised sound therapies, ranging from relaxing, and energising to slightly disturbing. In addition to the individual therapeutic sounds, an overall acoustic is created for the whole space, unifying it into one immersive sound installation.

Please note due to the nature of this work, it will not be open throughout gallery opening hours.
