Walking piece details

With Marches, commissioned by Artangel Inter- action in February 2008, Lawrence Abu Hamdan set out to explore the auditory perception of the built environment using the ephemeral and intangible nature of sound to re- imagine our architectural surroundings and daily spatial practices.

These choreo- graphed marches saw ten participants navigate two planned passages through the urban districts of Tower Hill (track 1) and More London (track 2), areas distinct for both their lively history and mottled aural atmosphere.

Each member of this small troop was equipped with footwear designed and adapted in collabora- tion with west-end cobbler Andy during a mini res- idency at Anthony Andrews Special Footwear and Orthotics in April. These shoes were constructed for exaggerated sonic effect; loafers, boots and brogues were adorned with wooden platforms and hollow stiletto heels.
