As the first phase of a new site-specific composition, Ed Carter will be installing a barograph to monitor and record the atmospheric pressure at Sage Gateshead.
This short video illuminates the project
What’s a barograph?
Great. What happens to the data?
Over the course of four weeks, visitors will see the installation gradually create a series of graphs, charting changes in atmospheric pressure within the venue during the seasonal transition from Winter to Spring.
The charts will then be used as graphic scores for a brand new piece of music, to be performed live in June, as part of Festival of the North East. Visit Ed Carter’s website to learn more about his work.
