“Thank you for the fantastic sounds today. I love machines – their sounds and motions, and to be virtually placed inside one was a wonderful experience. The sounds moved very sensitively and appropriately to the subject matter, and the musical shape worked beautifully – easing us in to a long (but with variation) meditation, bringing us out again subtly.”

“I felt as though I was inside the engine! The sound circling me, and with the amazing acoustics of St Mary’s made it a truly wonderful immersive experience.”

“Thank you for putting on such a special event. It was especially wonderful because I’ve worked at Papplewick. To hear it all in such astounding beautifully orchestrated clarity was wonderful. The candles, warmth, and cups of tea in the church made it a completely beautiful experience. A unique Birmingham moment.”
