Title – Resonance
Business – Caffe Boa

Adam Murray believes sonic energy (vibration) is stored over time.  He is fascinated with the sound of that energy. The installation in this gallery space is the artist’s own experiment with the idea that sound is absorbed and contained within physical objects.  Four objects (a brick, a floorboard, a wine glass and a fork) inspired by objects in Caffe Boa, are suspended from the ceiling where they are set up to potentially receive audio from all sides – recording the history of this space through sound over the course of the exhibition.


Murray’s installation at Caffe Boa is an auditory interpretation of the aural events that fill the restaurant space, projected through speakers every hour on the hour.  It emanates into the environment and creates awareness of the physical space and history it contains. 

For the closing event of the exhibition, the artist will create a live sound performance in which he attempts to extract the aural events from the four objects, releasing the sounds which have been absorbed.
