River Sounding

I stumbled across Bill Fontana’s River Sounding installation at Somerset House yesterday. Sounds collected from above and below the surface of the Thames have been installed in the underground spaces of Somerset House (not usually open to the public). Some spaces also have images from the Thames projected onto walls/piles of broken stones. It is a fantastic – and (excuse the pun) immersive – experience, this mix of subterranean urban with an incredible watery soundtrack. If you’re in London, go! It’s on until 31st May, and there are a whole load of linked talks and events too. More info here: http://soundandmusic.org/activities/events/bill-fontana-river-sounding
