"Brighton Variations" juxtaposes compositions of sounds made by resonating the ceramic sculptures with poems by the sculptor Michelangelo.

Ceramics are by Icelandic ceramics artist Ingibjörg Guðmundsdóttir. The sounds were recorded during the making of the collaborative installation "Littoral Assembly" for Brighton Digital Festival. Part of the Landscape:Islands series curated by Joseph Young and Kay Aplin.

Contains a stereo compression of the original 4-channel installation sound.You can find out more about it at


Iris Garrelfs works on the cusp of music, art and sociology across improvised performance, installation and fixed media projects. Illustrating her site-specific approach to sound, ATTN:Magazine notes “Her demeanour tilts in response to micro-adjustments in mood or room temperature”.

Work has been included in major institutions worldwide, for example Tate Britain, National Gallery, HackTheBarbican, Visiones Sonores (Mexico), MC Gallery (New York), Museum of Modern Art Celje (Slovenia), Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art in Bolzano (Italy). Collaborations have included Scanner and Thomas Köner.

Iris holds a PhD in sound art from London College of Communication (University of the Arts London) where she also teaches. Elsewhere she is the commissioning editor of the online journal Reflections on Process in Sound and the co-curator and co-director of Sprawl.
