Lightning Ensemble

This was one of four flagship projects commissioned by the Creative Campus Initiative (CCI), and was awarded an "Inspire" Mark project as endorsed by LOCOG for the Cultural Olympiad. The initiative linked the University of Brighton with the production to assist in research and to develop a hypersonic auditory soundtrack, which was integrated into the performance.
