Nagaras/Seraphim
2009
Composition of sound recordings of singing sand and singing glass, Whispering Windows loudspeaker system
Duration: 4:40

‘Nagaras’ are drums, used in Turkey and Caucasus, but similar drums were well known in the ancient Egypt. A ‘seraphim’ is a glass harmonica, a tableau of wine goblets, named after the highest rank of angels.
‘Singing sand’ is a phenomenon, which exists, under the right circumstances, in desert across the world, and throughout history there has been numerous account of the phenomenon, among others in Marco Polo’s travel journals.

  Sound Houses Sound Houses are the sonic
analogue of a light house.
Rotating loudspeaker horns, mounted on the top of the structure, bathe the landscape in slowly rotating rays of sound. Designed to be located in spectacular exterior landscapes the structures will be large scale, up to 4m tall, and in the region of five of these ‘sound houses’ will be installed in any given location.
Working carefully with each site Ray will install the Sound Houses so that the beams of sound will combine to create a slowly shifting texture of electronic music distinctive to his work.
