Helmut Lemke - Sound Installation

'Hiddenplace' sounds like a unique oportunity to follow my research interests in site specific sounds and the communication of sounds closer to home.

I would like to investigate sounds of Burnley. The results of my investigations could take the form of temporary installations or durational performances.
