Bobby Bird will be exhibiting a newly commisioned sound installation at The Herbert Gallery in Coventry as part of A Thing About Machines, Festival Fri 19th – Sun 21st September. 

“Purpose Built” is a multiple speaker sound installation, using as
source material location recordings made at LTI, one of the last
outposts of manufacturing in Coventry, where Black Cabs are still
being hand built. The piece will be both a sonic re interpretation of
the process of manufacturing, and an exploration of sound as a
by-product of the manufacturing process.

Bobby Bird is a musician and sound artist. In the 90’s he released
experimental electronic music albums as the Higher Intelligence
Agency, while in recent years he has also been designing site specific
sound and light installations, and is currently a member of audio
visual collective Modulate.

Also at the Herbert will be a new sound installation ‘Re: Construction” by Cormac Faulkner, , and Kinopixel  a screen based installation curated by Darryl Georgiou
