The Gurgle Splosher rounded up it’s world tour (Bradford, Halifax) with a triumphant return to it’s home town of Mytholmroyd this October, imbuing god-like powers of weather control to all who dared to step up. Look out for more Gurgling activity next year.

Gurgle Splosher Bradford -3634At the top of the Gurgle Splosher is the upper ‘cloud’ reservoir which is a large, clear tank filled with water. At the bottom is the ‘sea’ reservoir. Water is pumped from the lower to the upper reservoirs when needed, and can then take several routes back down through the system, as determined by the actions of the visitors. Many different water sounds are produced; rain, flowing streams, drips, sudden deluges, bubbles, splashes and of course Gurgles and Sploshes. These beautiful watery sounds will be mixed in with recordings of young people’s voices taken during workshops at schools in Mytholmroyd.
