Dublin Sound Lab marks the 230th anniversary year of Robert Barker's patent application for the panorama painting by extending Barker's vision of a 360˚ visual experience and re-imagining a cityscape constructed in pure sound.
Our response is PERISONIC, an immersive, large-scale, panoramic animated 'painting' of Dublin, using 8 surround sound loudspeakers and 4 surrounding video screens. The audience are invited to actively discover and explore different audio-visual perspectives of Dublin.
Commissioned by Dublin Sound Lab as part of Music Current 2017 Festival, this concert-length installation is the result of a long-term collaboration between composers Scott McLaughlin, Gráinne Mulvey and Fergal Dowling, creative producer Sabina Bonnici and video artist Mihai Cucu.
