Bright, Danny (2018) Scored in silence: sound and vibration soundtrack. [Composition]

Full text not available from this repository.


The electroacoustic soundtrack for Scored in Silence (theatrical performance, film and installation) comprises both audio and vibration compositions, experienced during the work through both sonic and vibrotactile interfaces.

Scored in Silence is a digital artwork and performance by Chisato Minamimura that unpacks the untold tales of deaf hibakusha – survivors of the A-Bombs that fell in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 - and their experiences at the time and thereafter. It explores technologically mediated performance through a range of practices including holo-projection and vibrotactility. Developed in collaboration with a team of digital artists and supported by Vibrofusion Lab, Scored in Silence features the work of Jon Armstrong (lighting/projection design) Danny Bright (sound/vibration composition) and Dave Packer (animation). Scored in Silence is produced by Sarah Pickthall.

Scored in Silence employs Woojer© vibration straps worn on the body for audience members to feel the haunting soundscape and vibrational composition. The work also employs Holo-Gauze © projection that meshes Chisato’s sign mime performance with stunning animation.

The work exists in three formats: as a live theatrical performance, full-length performance film, and gallery installation.

The work has been supported by Arts Council England, British Council, Canada Council for the Arts, the Great Britain Saskawa Foundation, with in-kind support from Woojer©.
