Sound Seat 2022
Sound Seat is a sensory
sculpture commissioned by Coventry City of Culture.
Artists & long-time collaborators, Rosie Tee & Bryony Simcox have come together to create a bespoke sculpture for the Sensory Garden in Coventry's War Memorial Park.
“We believe cities need more green spaces which create moments for calm reflection. With this in mind we’ve created Sound Seat, a sensory sculpture which includes playable recycled instruments and a soundscape made up of natural field recordings from the city. We hope people grow to love this organic structure and come to sit, listen and play.”
Nestled amongst greenery, Sound Seat is accompanied by an atmospheric, site-specific ambient soundtrack composed by Rosie entitled 'twist and turn', featuring the voices of people who enjoy the park and birdsong from the local area.
Sound Seat will remain installed in the Sensory Garden for the foreseeable future for many to experience and enjoy.
Commissioned by Coventry City of Culture,

Friends of War Memorial Park for #GreenFutures,
supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
