I worked with 59 Production’s Richard Slaney to create this exhibition for the IWM. In the first space I created a soundtrack entirely out of the sound of sand, to accompany a projected abstract piece animated using sand particles. The second space, which was completely dark and treated to be acoustically dead, featured am ambisonic soundscape of a number of two-minute silences, that myself, my team and others recorded of a variety of memorial silences held across the world, from St. Pauls to a submarine, from Derby Football Club to the Everest Base Camp.
Collaborating with curators Claire Catterall, Lizzie Ostrom and podcast producer Jo Barratt, I worked on creating a soundtrack for each of the ten perfumes that feature in this exhibition.
Glastonbury Land and Legend exhibition
I worked with the V&A Theatre and Performance Department to help create this exhibition, which looks at the world of Glastonbury Festival beyond the music. I went to Glastonbury Festival in 2014 and 2016 to record a mix of atmosphere and interviews with attendees and staff. From this we created two exhibitions, one at the Page Quadrennial in 2015, and on at the V&A museum in London in 2016.
