How do urban noises affect our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing?

Arts collective Analema Group invite you to explore the effect of urban noise on our wellbeing. Join in a programme of workshops and talks alongside an immersive sound installation created in collaboration with Better Bankside, local residents and researchers in the field of noise pollution.

KIMA: Noise invites you to experience the ‘ocean of urban sounds’ surrounding you daily. Microphone stations will capture sounds from Tate Modern’s direct urban environment and recreate them as an immersive surround sound installation within Tate Exchange. Real-time city noises will be analysed and arranged as an immersive 3-dimensional, invisible sound sculpture.

Envision creative ways of dealing with noise in your own life through active listening and participation. Learn about the history of noise in art, the effects of noise on our physical body and mental states. And discuss your own experiences with noise in a workshop and in two talks, bringing together local residents and communities with experts on the effect of noise on health.
