EartH is one of the few venues in the world which permanently houses L-Acoustics’ immersive hyperreal sound system L-ISA. It is in the theatre that the fittingly evolutionary L-ISA system has been installed to offer audiences enhanced clarity, more natural sound, and a wider sound panorama.
When The Serpentine produced their experimental sound event The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish with Plants as part of their General Ecology season at EartH, they utilised the system to present sound as sculpture with a headline performance being the premiere of a new multichannel piece by wildlife sound recordist and David Attenborough collaborator Chris Watson (founding member, Cabaret Voltaire).
In the words of L-Acoustics, “in the dark, surrounded by an audience of 500, you don’t just hear the sound of bearded seals singing and orca whales moving through forests of kelp – you experience it physically.”

With features such as L-ISA, the venue provides an ideal platform for experimentation; our state-of-the-art sound system has been utilised by the likes of Johnny Marr.
