Vox Nautica Installation by Denise Higgins and Gary Smith, ANCA Gallery Canberra

Pipe Supply and Repair, Technical Consutation 2013

“An installation work preoccupied with exploration, places not on the map, but rather moments that niche in the imagination, ideas of the wilderness of the soul, and the journey of life.” Denise Higgins


The Bourdon pipes sounded live in the installation, through midi programming, their sound as a felt and heard experience as they are low and deep in tone. This meant many visitors spent time with the hands directly on the boat hull, on their own  personal journeys. However that is not so captured on the soundtrack. – DH
