Amplification is a stereo acoustic amplification system, developed to encourage deep listening to environmental sounds within a space. Users of the system will augment their listening through two large ear trumpets. In addition, they will be able to adjust the stereo field of what they can hear by swivelling each horn; creating a distinctive and unusual listening experience.
I was approached by Sam Underwood (of mortonandunderwood) to help design and build the Amplification project as part of there All Ears exhibition at Millennium Point in Birmingham. In association with Supersonic and funded by Arts Council England and Linstock.
Here is a little video explaining what it was all about.
