Nye Parry’s work encompasses sound installation, multimedia, concert works and numerous scores for contemporary dance. He has made sound installations for major museums including the National Maritime Museum, the Science Museum and the British Museum.
Much of his work focuses on musical structures, which can be navigated by the listener. The Exploded Sound, created during a period as research fellow at CRiSAP, University of the Arts, allows visitors to explore the inner structure (harmonics) of sound by walking among 60 small suspended loudspeakers and was premiered in Ljubljana in September 2012. The installation Significant Birds, exploring similar ideas, was created for the exhibition ILLUSION and has reached over 700000 visitors worldwide.
Collaborations with other artists include the immersive and site specific installations Digital Forest (2018), Playing the Bridge (2017) and The Point of Perception (2014) with Madi Boyd and interaction design for works by Cathy Lane (CRiSAP) and Richard Baker (BCMG).
