Creating and installing The Light art installation for Salisbury Cathedral was a brilliant challenge for 6 young volunteers in Poole.

Travers, Toby, Erween, Elliott, Zach & Sam are Conical Sphere Music volunteers who have worked alongside artist Richard McLester to create the art installation THE LIGHT. Last year saw them install their creation in Salisbury Cathedral where it was suspended from November 2018 to January 2019. THE LIGHT is a 4m illuminating globe which has the ability to produce a display of light and film across it’s surface. Inside the globe are 80 strips of LEDs and 4 projectors all of which can be controlled wirelessly from up to 50 metres away. The volunteers worked with artist Richard McLester to create the entire installation from scratch. “I have learnt so many new skills on this project” says Toby. “Everything from engineering to Agile project management!” “It was amazing to think how many thousands of people saw our work” says Sam. “Creating something for such an important building was very rewarding.”

Songs of The Light Performance

On Tuesday 14th August 2018 7:30pm, we’ll be putting on an exciting and immersive performance of Songs of the Light at Greyfriars Community Centre in Ringwood, Hampshire!

This December, we’ll be installing ‘The Light’, a giant illuminated globe in Salisbury Cathedral. To launch the art installation, we’ll be performing an immersive concert of pop and choral music called Songs Of The Light.

Ahead of the performance, we’re putting on an open rehearsal of the music and projections. It’s a free event and we’d love to showcase our plans for the project in Salisbury.

CREATED BY THE COMMUNITY Everything that you will see; the music, the film, the giant screens, the technology that links the film and the music, has all been created by local volunteers who have given their time to create something special. THE MUSIC Songs Of The Light has been especially written for the project by composer Richard McLester. In Salisbury, he’ll be joined by a choir of over 150 singers to perform the songs.
