Bringing artists and audiences together in a live broadcast environment, where memories and moments can be shared and broadcast in digital realities.
We’ve conjured up a unique blend of sound and light for audiences of up to 350 people to enjoy in the venue; using ‘sets’ within the venue to stream live to a global audience of up to 7.6bn. Next up, we’ll be experimenting with future tech to push the boundaries of what a venue can be. We’ll mainly be keeping things local whilst the effects of the pandemic reduce, then we’ll be bringing artists and talents national and international to the venue for local enjoyment.
Audio & Acoustics
The venue hosts a unique multichannel array set up of Funktion One speakers with Full Fat Audio amps. 18 speakers, each with DSP control are placed around the venue which creates the opportunity to make spatial sound scapes along with seperate individual outputs, evoking a sense of theatre that immerses the audience from entering the building. Our exploration of high fidelity sound is ongoing; currently we are using Klipsch Cornwalls powered by Icon Audio and Bryston amps. The venue has been clad in acoustic treatments and angular surfaces, to reduce the effects of standing waves and reflection.
Lighting & Art
Bespoke dynamic light & art installations have been built into the structure of the building to create an ever changing immersive experience. Each LED can be programmed individually, reacting to various data sources such as audio, sensors and in development, AI.
The venue has been designed and equipped to enable art, music, performance and talks to be broadcast, recorded, edited and made available as produced content within the venue. The concept is to turn the venue into a satellite, platforming and transmitting to a digital audience.
Faith In Strangers will continue to explore and celebrate future technologies and science. Experimentation in the realms of AI, XR (Extended Reality), audience interaction, immersion and sensors.
The venue is built with the future of art and interactivity in mind. In practical terms this translates in uniquely designed installations that can be controlled by artists and the audience. Our aim is to blur the lines between realities, live and virtual, within the venue.
