The weekend of 10th and 11th September saw Musicity come to Southwark - and a huge thank you to all that made it such a success.
Alongside the compositions in response to the borough's architecture (from Throwing Shade, William Doyle, Hejira, Stick in the Wheel, Moses Boyd, Sean O'Hagan and patten) saw a number of community events with artists and sound and architecture experts, a gig and a talk broadcast live on Resonance FM.
My role was to commission artist Sian Hutchings to lead sound walks with member of the public and The Building Exploratory to work with an elders group to explore the local built environment, using the commissioned music. I also I led some urban rambles around the featured sites.
Musicity seeks to encourage people to explore the city musically, architecturally and experientially by comissioning musicians to compose original tracks in response to a building, site or piece of the city that inspires them.
