room 33 ECHOES

36 Charlotte Street, City Centre, Manchester, M1 4GS, United Kingdom
A Meeting Place | 会议地点 layers original sound compositions and field recordings with photographs and oral histories from the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Art's (CFCCA) archive, in which interviewees talk of their migrant experience, their identities as people of Chinese heritage living in the UK, memories of Manchester's Chinatown and Chinese festivals, and CFCCA’s first venue at 36 Charlotte Street. The audio for this work has been mixed in 360-degree binaural audio, providing a fully immersive experience that sonically animates the archival materials and creating the sensation that different sounds are being emitted from all directions around the listener’s head.

AUTHOR

Hayley Suviste Hayley Suviste

Hayley Suviste is a sound artist and composer who works with archival recordings, field recordings, electronic hardware and live instrumentation to create long-form pieces, sonic installations, and multimedia art projects. From her background in Electroacoustic Composition, Hayley has established a unique sound art practice through which she explores topics of community, cultural identity, and heritage. Inspired by the rich tradition of oral history, she creates intimate sonic explorations of voice and space which animate broader sociohistorical themes. These themes are woven together through dynamic compositional techniques, utilising multichannel, ambisonic and binaural formats to actively immerse and engage communities. Hayley also co-runs The Manchester Ear, a soundwalk initiative which aims to get communities involved with listening to the environment on excursions in and around Manchester. www.hayleysuviste.co.uk
