BBC Radio 3 feature on City of Things for BBCR3 Exposure, Oct 2017 including interview with Caroline Devine.
City of Things – my new sound installation that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ‘new town’ of Milton Keynes is now open in centre:mk. City of Things is a 60 channel work that uses my field recordings as the starting point for composition. It features local birds, bats, mosquitos, buddhists, football fans, choirs, the work of 18th century poet, William Cowper and the voice of contemporary performance poet Murray Lachlan Young. The sound is embedded into the building itself using a system of resonators on the huge glass windows of the Grade II listed shopping centre, speakers hidden in plants and trees and sound diffused over the tannoy system.
