Electric Sound Palace
An historic cinema brought to life through 3D soundscapes. Conjure the cinemas original 21-piece orchestra in an installation combining historical references with immersive sound technology.

The original Paignton Electric Picture Palace, opened in 1914, is believed to be the oldest surviving purpose-built cinema in Europe. Once a cinema and film library, it in its early days it featured a 21-piece orchestra, with each member paid a guinea to perform. Drawing on remarkable archive materials of Paignton Picture House Trust, Chris Timpson and collaborators are creating a new site-specific work, inspired by the original accompanying orchestra, transporting audiences into a wondrous Electric Sound Palace.

Chris Timpson is a sound designer with a specialism in 3D spatial audio for both multi-speaker and headphone listening. His experience in this area is unique, having worked with immersive sound projects for several years, he is one of the leading specialists in ambisonic and 3D audio mixing.

Suitable for all ages.
