Cathedral Close, Norwich NR1 4DD
We are excited to announce a multimedia art gallery show for the first two weeks in October in Norwich at the Crypt Gallery in the Close next to the Cathedral. It is a unique art gallery space in a beautiful and historic corner of medieval Norwich.
The show features large exhibition prints of the Botanical Optical static images and an exciting and innovative audiovisual installation by Benedict Braund who will be creating a one-off, sensory immersive experience for all the family using digital projections and other experimental interactive techniques.
The installation features Tim's kaleidoscopic video effects of flowers blooming, combined with soothing 3D binaural soundscapes that work with specific brainwave frequencies for a more relaxing and immersive experience. The show will be a visual and aural treat and should delight adults and children alike.
Tim Platt is a professional photographer and videographer. He has delivered international advertising campaigns for blue-chip companies like Unilever, P&G, Samsung, LG, Britvic and GSK among many others. But he has always combined this with personal work which is most at home in a frame on a wall. He still runs his own studio in central London, although he and his family have now enjoyed living in Norwich for 15 years.
The Botanical Opticals exhibition has evolved from ideas explored during the development of MOODLAPSE - a unique interactive relaxation app for iOS and tvOS created by Tim.
Benedict Braund has had a multifaceted career across the worlds of art, music and performance. Benedict’s band; Braund Reynolds enjoyed national chart success with ‘Rocket’ on Virgin Records, championed by Pete Tong, Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk) & Fatboy Slim. He and his company Global Overground now embrace pan platform digital experience delivery. He says 'Combining all the technology that’s now so readily available with some lateral thinking, imagination and good, old fashioned stage craft has started up a whole new, super-exciting chapter for us'. He has recently moved to Norwich.
He will also be remastering all audio for the show using 3D spatial audio via state of the art Dolby Atmos™ technology, which will travel around the gallery space via multiple speakers for a truly immersive effect.
Music for the audiovisual installation will be composed by South African composer Derrick Van Heerden, and British composer Sea Elegy.
Van Heerden’s meditation music is designed to stimulate the brainwave frequencies that promote relaxation and wellbeing. ‘I specialise in music that contains epsilon, delta, theta, beta or gamma brainwave frequencies in the form of binaural beats or isochronic tones,’ says Van Heerden.
Sea Elegy is an atmospheric sound creator of ambient, soundscape, drone and electronic audio and music. Originally from the UK, he has resided in East Asia for nearly a decade and is involved in many different audio and video projects including providing themes for well known video games including Resident Evil.
