Sound | Art | Architecture

Liminal is a partnership between architect Frances Crow and sound artist and composer David Prior. We began working together in 1996, and formalised our working partnership in 2003. Our work focuses on exploring the relationship between sound, listening and the environment. It encompasses site-specific interventions and sound walks, gallery installations, performances, research and consultancy as well as sound and music environments for exhibitions.
