hen we were asked by the Science Museum to create a soundscape for their latest exhibition Robots, we decided to create something for the entire space which was itself robotic. We were given recording access to some amazing robots and machines, sourced recordings through archives and designed and programmed our own interpretations. The result is a generative soundscape that runs across all 7 gallery spaces, issuing from 64 speakers in real time.
We have a detailed making of video coming out soon, in the meantime, here are some behind-the-scenes snaps from the installation.
e were commissioned to interpret Matthew Herbert’s creative response to the Wellcome Collection’s This is A Voice brief to investigate the spectrum of the human voice.
Matthew Herbert’s CHORUS is an installation piece in which visitors record their voice, their recording then joins a larger chorus comprised of previous visitors’ recordings. Each day the chorus grows as more visitors contribute to it. Approximately 20,000 people participated in the London leg of the project.
