SARC Sound Space Environment by SARC Research Group 

This group exhibition will showcase some of the collaborative and individual works of the artists of SARC’s Sound Space Environment Research Group. Installations include:

  • Legacy Soundscape of ECOS Park

The installation provides a multi-dimensional listening experience, offering diverse perspectives on the distinct sound sources in and around the park and raising awareness about the impact of human activity on the natural environment.

  • Sonic Engagements with Deserts, Forests, Rivers, and Cities

Compositions focusing on sound, space, and well-being. These consist of immersive sound works based on field recordings drawn from contrasting environments, including forests, rivers, deserts, and cities.


The harbour hosts sea travel, tourist visits, wildlife, commercial buildings, and constant interference that often goes unnoticed: radio frequencies, sea life activity, and interactions in the urban environment. The piece enables another mode to listen to these spaces.

The SARC Sound Space Environment (Research Group) at SARC: Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Sound and Music, Queen’s University Belfast, comprises PhD students headed by Professor Pedro Rebelo. They investigate interactions between sound and space using interdisciplinary methodologies relating to acoustic ecology, environmental studies, sound and music technologies, composition, health, and many others.

Members: Pedro Rebelo, Georgios Varoutsos, Lara Weaver, and Robert Coleman
