First Square


'First Square' (2019) was produced for the London Festival of Architecture. One of the event's activities was dedicated to the sounds of the Old Kent Road in South London. 

 

In collaboration with Jamie Wignall, field recordings and video material were captured during visits at specialist businesses in the area. 

 

The sounds of production in progress, alongside the physical products made by these companies, were incorporated into a live performance inspired by the electroacoustic compositions of modernist composer John Cage. 

 

The video material became part of the performance and was turned into an audio-visual piece. All pictures and sounds were taken on site.
