Join sound artist Rebecca Glover and foley artist Sue Harding for an exciting exploration of the Gallery’s art collection through sound.

  • imagine the ‘sonic worlds’ that different objects in our collection may have experienced
  • record your own soundtracks inspired by our objects
  • discover the world of foley recording techniques

Not only that, but members of Kaiser Chiefs will be visiting on the final day of the course to see the work inspired by the exhibition, and to chat to attendees about their personal highlights.
