Sounding Out Liverpool

 

As part of the Liverpool Discovers art event Giant ‘sound mirrors’ installed in front of the Anglican Cathedral tempt people to listen to the city through the artwork, which amplifies the continual flowing soundscape of the city and its inhabitants.

 

Surrounding the mirrors are extracts from Liverpool songs, poems and sayings reflecting the the films, books and  entertainers of Liverpool.

 

The instructions for use are given as follows:

  • Place your head at the dish centre (not too far in) and listen! 
  • Have a friend whisper from afar
  • Throw your voice 
  • Speak the poems, recite your own 
  • Experiment… sound Liverpool out!
