CHORUS - Ray Lee

Chorus is a monumental and impressive installation of kinetic sound sculptures by artist Ray Lee taking place on The Cornhill, Ipswich.

Towering above the audience, a series of giant metal tripods support rotating arms. At the end of each arm loudspeakers emit precisely tuned musical pitches creating a pulsating, harmonic drone, singing out a hypnotic siren call to all those present.

Red lights at the end of the arms create the effect of a whirling swarm of fireflies, or of planets in motion, like mesmerising orbits of colour. These intersecting lights trace rings above the heads of the audience, while the combined chorus of the spinning speakers creates a cohesive harmonious whole, ‘a sticky flux’, that is both uplifting and transfixing.

Ray Lee is an award-winning sound artist and composer. He creates spinning, whirling and pendulous sound installations and performances that explore “circles of ether”, the invisible forces that surround us.
