Bio

Augustine Leudar is a multidisciplinary audio-visual artist who specialises in spatial audio and Interactive 3D sound.  He creates 3d soundart, audio holograms, , sonic illusions and immersive installations that surprise, mislead, and delight audiences. His work often incorporates other artistic disciplines such as sculpture, 3D printing, theatre, mythology and painting. His work is often site specific and on a huge scale often with many acres being covered with immersive sound. Characterised by a surreal sense of humor, he creates new worlds and augmented realities through hidden speakers and projectors, concealed microphones, sensor and tracking technologies, and mischievous intent, turning any space into anywhere, from the smallest nook to entire woodland expanses.

“…a most surreal, otherworldly experience……As we walked back down the lane after this ethereal experience, here was a feeling that we had witnessed something fleeting and beautiful. Tonight at the Giant’s Ring you won’t find a new age sound installation. This is the beauty and uniqueness of projects such as this.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                  

 Mary Stevens, Visual arts News Sheet

Augustine Leudar, which blends field recordings made in the cloudforest in Veracruz with abstracted elements of folk music, and even sounds the human ear can’t detect that he has made audible by changing the frequency. It is very special. 

Betsabeé Romero

“The bangs, squeaks, howls and banshee roars mysteriously emanating from copses and tree-clusters, as the promenade around the park develops, are genuinely eerie and unsettling in the mizzly Belfast darkness, the more so for their sources being hidden by Augustine Leudar’s ingenious sound installation.”

Terry Blain, Irish Theatre Magazine

“The candlelit, disused pool is a highlight, not least through the soundscape of ghostly swimmers by digital sound artist Gus Leudar.”

Remco van Straten, NI Scene
