WEEK 1: Phill Harding 'house' and Sound Walks

house by Phill Harding

From 14th to 18th July Phill Harding’s ‘house’(2000-2005) inhabits The Drawing Shed. This immersive, constantly changing sound installation is constructed from simple yet meticulously-staged domestic soundscapes. Recorded in houses devoid of human presence, the material focuses on the usually unnoticed sounds that surround us. Visitors are welcome everyday between 12-5pm to take some time to sit and listen inside the installation.

Phill Harding is a sonic artist based in the Pennine hills of West Yorkshire. Much of his current work involves the use of untreated (raw) location field recordings, with particular emphasis on the places we inhabit and the multiple resonances of architectural space.
