Join spoken-word poet Chris Preddie OBE and musician / sonic artist Kerry Nixon to experience Orleans House Gallery like never before. You will be immersed into a world of sound, inspired by Victorian explorer, Sir Richard Burton. Walk around the Gallery and be taken on a sensory adventure, from traversing the Arabian Sea to the bustling streets of Delhi.
Odyssey is an immersive sensory exploration using poetry, spoken-word, music and sound design that has culminated in a final sound installation. Discover how the piece was made with short poetry, spoken word, electronic music and sound-design sessions running throughout the day. Compose your own poetry and music and get creative with sound design.
