East Tower is a new film by Hannah Dargavel-Leafe and Jack West commissioned by White Noise.

About

During their residency at the former BBC White City site last summer, Dargavel-Leafe and West explored the former home of BBC children’s television and drama that looks down over the the iconic television studios and neighbouring building sites. They picked out objects and features of the building — lighting grates, faucets, the numerous pin boards dotted around the spaces — and recorded sounds both from the fabric of the building and through the building, using it as a listening device for what was going on around it.

West created CGI renderings of the space, using the virtual environment to focus on small actions, the placement of objects, materials and scale. Dargavel-Leafe has used her recordings to make foley for these actions, misusing the original recordings and composing a soundtrack out of the processed sounds. The building has now been demolished and the resulting film is of a building in flux, a site at a point of change.

This project was commissioned by White Noise on behalf of Whitewood for the Television Centre East Tower commissions.
