Details

Professor Ray Lee will reveal the ideas behind his kinetic sound sculptures, large-scale performances and installations.

 

He is fascinated with invisible forces such as radio waves, electricity and magnetism. They have led him to make mesmerising art works that have immersed global audiences in whirling and spinning sound worlds.

 

Ray’s lecture will address the question, “can sound be used to generate a state of wonderment?” – prepare to listen in wonder.
