A new work-in-progress by acclaimed Artist in Residence Beccy Owen, The Amplified Sanctum, takes Beccy’s composition work into exciting new territory. The new material strips away her usual pop-baroque complexity in favour of spellbinding and hypnotic music that defies easy categorisation.

Beccy, a neurodivergent and disabled artist, has been exploring how to cultivate creative processes that are sustainable and offer a radical approach to wellbeing. She is exploring the interaction between neuroscience, music and sound and how our relationship to bodies of water and other natural phenomena allow us regenerative possibilities. This research will culminate in an immersive, interactive piece that is an absorbing, playful, and restorative sonic experience.
