Ear Trumpet

Ear Trumpet

Gobbledegook Theatre


Ear Trumpet is about listening. It’s about the sound under the ground. The noises that you would miss if you didn’t listen for them. A team of sonic investigators have managed to track an exceptional auditory occurrence.

Eons-worth of sound is trapped inside our ancient rock and occasionally, these sounds bubble up and erupt to the surface. Ear Trumpet allows you to listen in on this incredible sonic phenomenon.

Commissioned by Without Walls, Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival and Hat Fair.
Originally commissioned by Activate for the Inside Out Dorset Festival and Arts Bournemouth for the Arts by the Sea Festival.
