Sound installation | 2011-2012
Evensong is a sculptural sound installation that explores the relationship between architectural acoustics and physical materials. The compositions were created from sounds transduced through a column in the interior chapel of St. Paul's Cathedral in London 2007.
The limestone used to create the cathedral is quarried from Portland Dorset and comprised of layers of Voice and Organ from an Evensong mass were recorded by placing a piezo electric disc on the limestone surface of the cathedral. The recordings were transposed to magnetic tape into loops. The work is exhibited as a series of looping fragments played back through a vibrating limestone surface via a custom-built speaker.
