Details

If the stars were a musical instrument, how would they sound?

Inspired by a visit to Armagh Observatory, Robert Jarvis created this sound installation. Stars were given different notes according to their colours, and sounds were generated by changing patterns of stars moving in the sky.

Complementing the sound piece is a selection of museum objects and images relating to stars, space, navigation and journeys.

aroundNorth has been made possible with funding through the PRS Beyond Borders Scheme and EU-UNAWE. Grateful thanks too to Outdoor Culture, Armagh Observatory and QTX.
