Word, Sound and Power

Video: Installation Detail | Please note the original piece was played through a 30kw sound system and has very low infra bass frequency’s with no treble. I have added a small amount of treble for this web version.

This work was commissioned for the New Generation Arts Festival in Birmingham, UK. The show was in what was once the Central Methodist Mission and is now a 5000 capacity dance music venue called the Q-club. The work considers the space (the old chapel) and the connection between the street corner preachers in methodism and the notion of “Word, Sound Power” for street corner ‘toasters’ in Reggae culture.
