14th May

This late night event will host a collection of adventurous sound performances both in and outside the Cumberland Arms. Firstly, we present Murmurate an audio-visual composition performed through the audience's smartphones. In this piece the swarm of tiny speakers create a collection of overlapping sound sources enabling listeners to gain a unique spatial perspective on their shared environment. There are two performances at 10pm and 11pm - free tickets should be booked in advance online. Following the shows, live electronic music will be performed outside The Cumberland by artists from the Triptik label. Incorporating sound, light and live visuals we will transform the pubs magnificent beer garden into intriguing, immersive environment until 2am.
