The Hope Street Project is an innovative art installation, which will link the Liverpool's two iconic Cathedrals during September and November 2008.
The project uses two lasers - one visible during hours of darkness and the second an invisible beam carrying voices and sounds between the two Cathedrals. Voices travel as light down Hope Street.
The voices also vibrate the strings of a guitar creating a chordal and harmonic backdrop to the delicate tapestry of voices.
The overall sound created will offer a gentle and discreet ambience for reflection and contemplation.
Visitors to the Cathedrals will be able to hear the sounds created by the installation in both Cathedrals at the designated times below.
Or you can drop into the Cathedrals at the times detailed above to record your voice.
The Hope Street Project represents the third phase of a series of collaborative installations between artist and musician Peter Appleton and composer Simon Thorne. They are now working with the artist and writer Colin Dilnot on this project.
Laser engineer Keith Snook; software developer Ben Mitchell; project engineer Wayne Stevens are supporting the project.
Stelios Giannoulakis, an electro-acoustic composer based in Athens, created the original digital system that drives the installation. This digital system has been developed further by Ben Mitchell.
