Spirtual Horn #1

Spiritual Horn #1 was a performance that took place during Newcastle Creative Quarter Block Party. For four hours Stu sat at the top of Bamburgh House stairwell playing a Tibetan-style horn. This was the first Spiritual Horn Herring built, and was in some ways experimental in its early form, the sound boomed through the building and drew the viewers towards the top of the stairs; in some instances people walked eight flights of stairs from the ground floor to discover the sound’s origin. Although an early form of the Spiritual Horn idea, the footage, still imagery, and audio recorded on the night remains some of Herring’s favourite outcomes produced from this type of performance.
