about

This soundtrack to a sensory art installation explored the state between sleeping and waking in a new experience for visitors at Little Moreton Hall, from 29 July – 29 October 2017.The Dreamer is Still Asleep combined sound and aroma at the National Trust attraction in Congleton, Cheshire, transporting visitors back to a time when the house was very much awake with character.

Visitors could sit in a secluded alcove, listen to this immersive soundtrack and then smell the gentle aroma of lavender released on the free postcard they collected on arrival.

Artist Scanner says,
“To me a building is always more than just a building. It’s a place of memory, of engagement, a place that reflects history. Little Moreton Hall offers up a wealth of history. Imagine if even the walls themselves could tell of all the events of the past, the stories they’ve witnessed. The location itself radiates with history. My work will bring the space alive in subtle ways previously unimagined, reaching an audience that would otherwise never experience such sonic art, opening up the space in so many new ways, and let the ghosts of the past bring new joy to contemporary visitors.”
