Blast Theory has received a new commission to develop a site specific audio work for Faster Than Sound at Snape Maltings in collaboration with musician Chris Clark.

Suffolk is a quintessential county of English peace and restraint. However the area also has a strong military history: bases, bunkers and research installations surround Snape. Drawing on this history, Fixing Point is a walk away from the Maltings into marshiness underfoot. Using a mobile app that tracks you as you explore you will find fragments of testimony from the relatives of victims in Northern Ireland.

Fixing Point will be presented on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May from 10am-6pm and is part of the Soundfields project curated by Faster Than Sound.
