Summoning Shadows is a live soundtrack and film featuring Sheffield’s iconic urban architecture accompanied by a sound performance created by Neil Webb and Ron Wright from musically associated-objects, analogue tape and field recordings. Ron Wright is a practitioner of sound in film and art whose work explores the notion of ‘Sound And Space’.  Neil Webb’s expansive sound practice reinterprets elements of film and literature narratives.

Webb and Wright’s previous collaborations include the live surround sound work, A Colony Provides a Safe Haven, performed as part of Contingency of Curation at Tate Britain (2010), and The Breach (2007) at Consortium, Amsterdam (2008).  Both are Senior Lecturers in Sound Design at Sheffield Hallam University.
