City of Things at MK Gallery

Written by caroline

I have adapted my sound installation City of Things to 16 channels for the Sky Room of the new MK Gallery’s inaugural show, The Lie of the Land. City of Things is a sonic portrait of the city of Milton Keynes in its 50th anniversary year. I invited performance poet, Murray Lachlan Young to write poems in response to six sites I had chosen across the city and these are woven throughout my compositions together with the sounds of nature and the voices of residents in chant, song and interviews. The work is diffused across the windows of the Sky Room, bringing the outdoor sonic environment and the resonances of the city into the gallery space. Free to visit til 26 May 2019.
