This is Chris Wood’s interactive sound installation, shown in our Sound Room earlier in February, which seeks to explore how the public engage with protest. The sounds were all recorded in London on November 30th 2011, the day of the biggest national strike in a generation. The locations were pickets, marches and demonstrations around central London.
The sounds were activated by visitors to the gallery as they stepped on pads marked with images of the street floor taken in the City of London.
On Saturday 4th February, Chris ran a workshop demonstrating the piece and recording CDs of the participants’ individual sound performances for them to take home. This was one of those recordings.
