We are literally watching sound as it moves through the air"

The Age – Melbourne

The precursor of Ray Lee's monumental outdoor installation Chorus, Siren is a whirling, spinning spectacle of mechanical, movement, electronic sound and light designed for venues and found spaces. Presented in 17 countries over the last ten years, this is a rare chance to see Siren in the UK.

This huge sculptural installation comes to life as the performers move about within a mass of swirling metal machinery, turning oscillators to change the musical composition. Evoking the effect of an ethereal choir, electronic tone generators create an extraordinary sonic texture of pulsing drones, while small LED's trace circles of light as the arms rotate, creating a compelling visual image.

Over the past 25 years award-winning artist, composer and performer Ray Lee has created works spanning installation, photography and music theatre.
