"Murmur" by Ray Lee. No Longer Empty at Liverpool Biennial of Contempora...

This piece was a real treat to see live. 'Murmur' is a site specific sound instillation exploring the empty space and electromagnetic fields. It began all dark with only red spinning lites to be seen, it was difficult to figure out what was going on at all and i assumed that was it. then a 'siren- like noise seemed to be coming from each pair of red lights, different sounds depending on speed of the spinning. What was nice bout this piece is that i found it very intriguing since i ccouldn't see what was going on, at one point i was close to flashing my phone's torch on the piece just to relieve me of my frustration, but then suddenly the light come on, and all is revealed. The noise seems to change pattern conveying some sort of subtle motif.
The piece was cleaver and discreet and was a very successful biennial piece.
