Audio Performance: The William Froude Project at 2pm on Thursday 2nd April in the Music Room at Sidholme Hotel, Sidmouth. Come and listen to an audio performance using headphones resulting from research into the Life of William Froude. William Froude 1810-1879 was a nautical engineer who changed the face of ship design. He built the first experimental testing tank at his home in Torquay. Municipal musicians Steve Sowden & Hugh Nankivell have been researching Froude these past few years, uncovering far more than expected. Their research has resulted in an audio piece for communal listening, via headphones; a curated world of aural possibilities.
