"Clouds from Cuckooland"

Multi-channel radio installation 2014

'Clouds from Cuckooland' was commissioned for an exhibition about the legend of the 'Canterbury Scene',
and in particular the work of Robert Wyatt. I was invited to create an installation from his 'Cuckooland' album,
which I evaporated into a 21 minute cloud of sound that floats around and around the gallery.

Using 3 x FM transmitters the composition was broadcast to 3 groups of radios set out on a vinyl circle,
accompanied by lasers, feathers, mirrors and glitter.

 


Commissioned by Artistic Director Matt Wright for the Sounds New Festival, Canterbury 2014.
