The Soundscapes of the York Mystery Plays

The Soundscapes of York Mystery Plays

Saturday 19 November 2016, 10.00AM to 6.00pm

We do not tend to think of sounds as a part of our cultural history, but many everyday sounds have been consigned to history never to be heard again.
 
Seeking to recreate a more three-dimensional version of history, the sound installation `The Soundscapes of the York Mystery Plays` invites participants to immerse themselves in medieval York. The installation gives attendees the opportunity to listen to the recreated soundscapes in the 16th century. These include a combination of archival sound recordings on the modern performances of the plays as well as newly recorded material. 

 

The installation `The Soundscapes of the York Mystery Plays` is part of the Being Human Festival 2016 and open to visitors in Bedern Hall in York from 18th - 21st November 2016.
