Immersive ‘Ocean of Tears’ by world leading sound designer to debut this July


Paula Fairfield, the ten times Emmy nominated award winning sound designer behind Game of Thrones and Lost, is working with the University of Greenwich and L-Acoustics (the company behind the concert sound of Post Malone, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Adele and many others) on an exciting new project.

Jodie Clarke Mattis and Jesse Coakley-First year Sound Design StudentsNewly appointed as a visiting Professor at the University, Paula's finished piece, 'Ocean of Tears', debuted this month alongside work by sound artist and electroacoustic composer Brona Martin and University of Greenwich academic Dr Andrew Knight-Hill.

All of the works have been composed using 3D sound technologies to creatively adapt and explore immersive spaces through composition. They will be performed in two public concerts on the 24 channel L-ISA Ocean installation at L-Acoustics UK premises in Highgate.

Speaking about the event, Dr Andrew Knight-Hill said:

"We're always looking to innovate in sound design here at the university. We are delighted to bring our skills and knowledge of sonic creativity to help refine and define what's possible with the L-ISA Ocean technology.

"It's great to not only be testing the limits of this technology within the university, but to also be able to collaborate with high-profile figures like Paula Fairfield and Brona Martin, both of whom are leaders in their respective areas."

Paula Fairfield added:

"Having previously worked with students and staff at the University of Greenwich through their outstanding Sound Design programme, I'm thrilled to be returning to collaborate with them to bring my sound work 'Ocean of Tears' to London audiences.

"I can't wait for people to hear what we have been doing and to share this via the L-ISA Technology at the upcoming summer concerts. It really will be something special."
