The Gurgle Splosher Makes It’s Debut
The Gurgle Splosher made it's debut on Sunday 2nd July as part of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival. The Gurgle Splosher is a playful, interactive sound-sculpture of the water cycle combining elements of Victorian pumping stations with modern domestic guttering systems.
The centre of Hebden Bridge was awash with people having fun in the sun, The Gurgle Splosher entertained all ages with many different water sounds, rain, flowing streams, drips, sudden deluges, bubbles, splashes and gurgles and sploshes. Some were lucky enough to get cooled down with a splash and a squirt of water!
The young people from local schools in Mytholmroyd are helping build the model during workshops and it's beautiful watery sounds will be mixed with recordings of their voices in preparation for it's grand performance at the Piece Hall on 30th September and 1st October.
Keep up to date with our social channels to see where the model will be popping up next.
