Ebb and Flow explores people’s memories of Hull through a unique 3D fully immersive sound experience. It connects to Hull’s links with water, transformation, regrowth and change.  The installation will include stories, songs,  fond memories, vague and vivid accounts of the past, seasons and descriptions of spaces that once existed. 

The installation also contains sounds of spaces, buildings and places around Hull. Re-interpreted and manipulated to create musical textures which in turn provokes a dialogue about perception of a place and space.  The content of the installation has been derived from various workshops working with people of different ages, cultures and communities in Hull, with contributions from local artists Jez Riley French, Wai Wan and the Hull Freedom Chorus Choir.

Ebb and Flow is a 23-speaker, fully immersive Ambisonic sound installation. It will be constructed using a Higher Order Ambisonics sound-field, almost like a dome-shaped structure, which will be programmed and installed in the History Centre by Liverpool based 3D/Ambisonic’s company, Kinicho. 

Running time is 2017 seconds on loop.

The installation runs at the following times:

Friday 30 June 1.30pm – 5.30pm
Saturday 1 July 9am – 4.30pm
Sunday 2 July 10am – 4pm
