Every Saturday, Manchester Jewish Museum will have two special sound installations for visitors to experience. The work was created from oral history clips in the museum’s collection of interviews with Jewish Mancunians talking about their meanings, memories and sensations of Sabbath, the Jewish day of rest, that begins on Friday at sunset and ends on the following evening after nightfall. Their words blend with a soundscape built from field recordings, voices, and deconstructed musical compositions.

Produced by multi-disciplinary arts company No Ordinary Experience, the piece was made by musician and sound designer Ben Osborn in collaboration with theatremaker Georgina Bednar and actor Rachel-Leah Hosker.
