In April 2009, the pioneering novelist JG Ballard died, leaving a legacy that has inspired generations of creative thinkers. His central treatise explored what he referred to as 'Inner Space' [rather than outer space]. Sound Artist Janek Schaefer lived a mile from his home. Over the last 15 years he has been creating a series of projects that celebrate Ballard's life and work, and will be creating a new version of his 'Inner Space Memorial [for JG Ballard]' sound sculpture, where loudspeakers play sound back into themselves, amplifying the inner void. Joining him for this group show, a team of local sound artists from CCCU's Creative Music Technology programme will each be producing a mixed media sound installation inspired by reading Ballard's work. The exhibits are experienced by plugging your headphones directly into them. Immerse yourself in a Ballardian sound spectacle one year on.
