Museums at Night: 15 May 2014

As part of Somerset House’s Museums at Night exhibition on 15 May 2014, I presented In Memory, an evening-long installation of electronic drones and nostalgic recompositions of Bach’s Cello Suite in G major.

The performance included a live ‘incantation’, repeated three times throughout the night, by solo musicians in Seamen’s Hall (South Wing, Somerset House), interspersed with electronic drones.

Incantations were performed by a combination of viola , cello, Baroque viola, Baroque cello, five micro-cassette recorders, speaker, a selection of handbells, and other pre-recorded sounds.

Viola – Paul Beckett
Baroque viola – Emma Alter
Violoncello – Deborah Chandler
Baroque violoncello – Natasha Kraemer
