Site Singing in the media

“Engaging sound-sketches, inspired by visits to some of Bristol’s finest heritage sites” – Bristol Life

“Southern is a genuine polymath…the execution [of her sound-sketches] requiring dedication, planning, and hard work. [They are] all created by the artist using her own voice [with] each piece drawing on her fine art and drawing background” – Louise Trimby, Bristol 24/7 see full article below

September 2016 – POLYPHONY exhibition and performances at Centrespace Gallery, Bristol BS1 

“In this exhibition Ellen will present and explore the multidisciplinary, polymathic, or, to put it in vocal terms, polyphonic (‘many voices’) nature of her practice. Ellen’s work spans the mediums of sound art, field recording, drawing, video, installation, performance and photography. This ‘polyphonic practice’ is influenced by a passion for singing in amateur choirs, together with a fascination for what she terms ‘vocalising site’: explorations of spatial acoustics via live and recorded voices, with a particular interest in heritage sites.”
