Mandie Brooks - La Gran Ola
Tsunami at Brighton - Sound Design Installation. This sound track is created for multitrack surround sound, “mix as you walk” through this sound installation experience. I have recorded most of the water effects myself with a Tascam hydrophone plonked in the sea. Although, whilst working with the water alot in this piece, I began to realise that water effects often sounded very serene and "wishy washy"…as if laying on a beach listening to the waves. I found that using mostly rumblings gave the effect more so, and ferocious water effects sparcely, and now and again. I used “Latch” on moving Channel EQ effects to give the feel of water pressure and movement in the rumblings, and low pass EQ for rumblings, reverb and delay were used in this piece to give a sense of depth and space. Bio Mandie Brooks is a singer/songwriter artist/musician for over 30 years now, studio session vocalist for artists and fronting her own bands in live performance. Vocals are her speciality.

Jeph Vanger - Henosis
“Henosis” (Ancient Greek: ἕνωσις) is the classical Greek word for mystical “oneness”, “union”, or “unity.” Henosis is an Audio Visual composition / installation consisting of a multichannel 7.1 sound composition and a visual composition which is projected onto a sphere. This is the stereo version of the piece which you can listen exclusively through the ReHear soundwalk. Bio Sound Designer/Sound Artist, born & raised in Athens, Greece and based in Brighton, UK. https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeph-vanger-06061874 https://www.facebook.com/Jeph1Music
Olivia Louvel - Workshop I
This piece is entirely composed from field recording made in the art workshops at the University of Brighton Grand Parade. Drawing a parallel between the practice of sculpting material and sculpting audio. Text: Barbara Hepworth Writings by Hepworth © Bowness Bio Olivia Louvel is a French-born, British composer, producer and artist whose work draws on voice, computer music and digital narrative. She operates on the frontier of art and electronic music http://www.olivialouvel.com/
Jean Martin - L-deconstruction
The work is based on a single viola tone, which is subsequently deconstructed into its harmonic constituents. These partial tones are organised in a time line and composed with other musical and environmental sounds into a mysterious dreamworld. Bio Jean Martin is a writer, lecturer and composer. http://www.soundbasis.eu/
Brianna Leeds: Terrore Impetum
I created this composition as a first person experience. You the listener will become the “person” within the composition, and go through their series of emotional events. These emotions are a mental state of anxiety and panic with in a public space. It is a journey starting off in a loud busy environment which triggers their anxiety attack and leading them away from the environment they were once in, down to the sea front. In order for a full effect of ‘out of the normal behaviour’ I have exaggerated sounds to make it more intense. Bio Brianna Leeds is a first year student at the University of Brighton. This composition was one of her first pieces created since starting the course, as well as her first experiment with surround sound composition. Brianna has always found music and sound effects combined really exciting, and fascinating, as one has the ability to paint a picture with only sounds, and alter a listener’s reality. You can create an emotional reaction by tapping into a person’s empathy, through your choice of instruments, and the specific arrangements of sounds. Photo Credit: Brianna Leeds
