Armaghoclock

Presented by: RobertJarvis
Public: Free
The Market Place Theatre
Armagh -- Northern Ireland

Building on his previous work in investigating different soundscapes, Robert Jarvis' latest sound installation is inspired by the City of Armagh, in Northern Ireland. Entitled, Armaghoclock, the work takes the form of a virtual timepiece utilising the whole of the Main Gallery space, and playing a different sound recorded from around the City every minute. With the aid of twelve loudspeakers positioned around the gallery in similar manner to the numbers around the circumference of a clock face, each of the sounds pans around the gallery space imitating the sweep of a clock’s second hand. The recordings range from the intimate to the well-known: from church bells to the pet shop's talking cockatoo - from pre-natal ultrasound to grave digging - referencing local trades, leisure and nature. Together, they combine to give their own account of the City’s identity, the people within it, and our changing soundscape.
