Frequency, Lincoln's first ever Festival of Digital Culture begins later this month, offering an exciting programme of digital installations and live performances in unexpected places.

Lincoln based Michelle Walsh will exhibit her first piece The Empty Space which consists of intimate moving portraits composed and lit like classical paintings. Michelle lines up with internationally acclaimed digital composer Philip Jeck who will be exploring the magical acoustic properties of Lincoln Cathedral.

John Cairns, Arts Council England's Relationship Manager for Regional Planning said: 'Frequency is an ambitious city-wide festival harnessing the talents of local, national and international artists. It will see the cityscape of Lincoln being used as a stage for cutting-edge artworks including sound art, projections, lighting and theatre.'

The festival has received £80,000 funding from Grants for the arts and is also part of the Igniting Ambition festival part of the Cultural Olympiad 2012.

A spokesperson of Frequency said: 'In this inaugural year, we are proud to present work from four continents. The interactive dreamlands of Metro-Boulot-Dodo's Four Seasons begins on 12 October, then the festival ramps up several gears on the 21 October with The Spire project, live at Lincoln Cathedral. This will feature organist Charles Matthews, John Beaumont, BJNilsen and recent Ars Electronica award winner, Philip Jeck.'
