Somerset House: Listen/Here

On 29 January 2015, I presented Listen/Here, the culmination of my residency at Somerset House, and the final event of the RE-Moulded projectListen/Here took the form of a series of simultaneous live performances in various locations around Somerset House, running continuously throughout the evening. Audiences were led by guides through each of the performance locations, focusing on the sounds of Somerset House, as well as the ways I’ve collected and re-worked them into music.

My scores and illustrations, based on the sounds of Somerset House, were brought to life in performances by CoMA, the Ligeti Quartet and more, with music inspired by underground generators, rushing traffic, bustling cafes and other ambient sounds around the building.

RE-Moulded was supported by the Sound and Music Embedded programme, funded by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, with support from Arts Council England. Full acknowledgements here.
