Hope Street Project Goes Live 29/10/08

The project will go live on the 29th October. You will be able to hear the voices we have collected in recent weeks to transmit between the 2 Cathedrals as well as being able to contribute your own voice if you so wish.

Here are details of the project when it goes live:

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 as follows:

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral: Holy Oils Chapel

Liverpool Cathedral: Main Body of Cathedral

Wednesday 29/10/08 2.00 - 3.00pm
Tuesday 4/11/08 2.00 - 3.00pm

If you would like to add your voice to the project during your visit to the Cathedrals then you will be able to contact a member of the project as follows:

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral: Adjacent Chapel Of Oils

Liverpool Cathedral: Opposite Derby Transept

What we would like you to give us is your answer to the following question:

What do you hope for in life?

Your response can be a word, a phrase, a sentence or a short poem.

You will be able to record the answer at an open microphone and hear your response join the other voices being transmitted between the 2 Cathedrals.
