AboutCreated by theatre-maker, composer and artist Graeme Miller, this free multi-screen video and sound installation is a series of projections situated in the spaces of the Barbican Centre's Car Park 5.
See and hear the recorded testimonies of 15 local participants based on their journey around the Barbican complex with a double-bassist. These moving and intimate accounts reveal their memories, associations and perceptions of the area, capturing the vicinity's hidden characteristics.
A solo bassline based on a work by Henry Purcell (to mark the 350th anniversary of this London-born composer) underscores the piece.
Presenting a new awareness of the City's landscape, Bassline: London is a formal exposition of momentary perception and layered meaning in an urban environment.
