Clarion Call

Free Ipswich Waterfront

Over the 10 days of Ipswich’s SPILL Festival of Performance, a large-scale outdoor sonic artwork will ring out from the waterfront into the town’s public spaces. This sonic intervention calls out to the setting sun in daily incantations, its voices reflecting contemporary Britain while exploring the local history of the First World War.

Devised by Melbourne-based artists Byron J. Scullin, Hannah Fox and Thomas Supple, Clarion Call uses audio technology originally employed in war and emergencies, and the voices and songs of women and girls, to create a soundscape of immense scale.

Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW and Pacitti Company for the SPILL Festival of Performance. Developed with the support of Dark Mofo Festival, Tasmania
