Walking piece details

Musicity x Culture Mile has commissioned 10 tracks from a diverse selection of artists as well as 3 VR video-art pieces which highlight the sonic landscape across Culture Mile.

Musicity works collaboratively across the disciplines of architecture, music, acoustic engineering and virtual reality (VR) to lay out alternative routes of experiencing contemporary cities. The interface it creates between architecture and music aims to reveal the intimate depth nestled in the acoustic qualities of our urban landscapes.

Following the collection and acoustic survey of 10 locations across Culture Mile conducted with Flanagan Lawrence Architects (award-winning architecture studio with a focus on acoustic and performance spaces) and Arup (global leader in acoustic consulting), Musicity assembled a wealth of perceptive musicians and sound artists to re-introduce human emotions into the architectural realm.

VR creative specialists Dissolving Path then reinterpreted 3 of these locations and associated tracks utilising techniques from the fields of typography, live video performance, animation, illustration and photography to allow users to experience these locations and the sound-art they inspired in entirely new ways.

The locations selected are: Barbican level -1 ‘Club Stage’, Barbican Lakeside, Barbican Sculpture Court, Beech Street Tunnel, The Charterhouse Chapel & Cloister, Fabric, subterranean spaces – part of the new Museum of London site in West Smithfield, St Bart’s The Great, CityPoint, Smithfield Rotunda Gardens.
Musicity x Culture Mile is commissioned by Culture Mile in association with the Barbican.

The musicians and sound artists are: Fari Bradley, EMS Collective (Guildhall School of Music & Drama), Kassia Flux, Robin The Fog, Alex Ho (LSO Soundhub artist), Emma-Kate Matthews, Tania Nwachukwu with Bump Kin, Craig Richards and Tom Richards.

The VR artists are: Scott McPherson (amoeba.design), Tim Grabham (iloobia) and Neil Cantwell from Dissolving Path.

The acoustic engineers are: Calum Ferreira and Edgar Svazas from ARUP.

Musicity team: Nick Luscombe, Solen Fluzin, Paul Bavister.
