Listening to the Dark Tour \ Various Artists (2017)

Listening to the Dark was a series of prodigious sonic experiments, explorations and expeditions that could be found deep under the earth in the subterranean bunkers of Peak Cavern.

Electronic composer and artist Beatrice Dillon produced an ambitious new work as part of a residency with Somerset House Studios, London, taking inspiration from Pauline Oliveros, the influential experimental composer and electronic music pioneer who died in November 2016. Mark Fell, developed a new piece working with different geometrics shapes, mathematical and notational systems, in light and sound, and Indonesian artists Ikbal Simamora Lubys & Tony Maryana created a larger-than-life resonant musical instrument in The Hive.
