Appeal for two hundred cyclists to take part in new sound installation in London


This is an appeal to cyclists who would like to take part in a new sound work at Gillett Square, Dalston, London E8 on Sunday 6th December between 12:00 noon and 9:00pm. You must be reasonably fit and able to cycle non-stop in 5 minute bursts. Invisible Dust curator, Alice Sharp, is appealing to cyclists across London to take part on Sunday the 6th of December from 12:00 noon - 9:00pm in a new art work by internationally renowned sound artist Kaffe Matthews. Matthews has made a new eight channel audio work that will take nine hours to unravel through eight speakers. It will be powered by bicycle. Each cyclist will be required to pedal non-stop for a minimum of five minutes. Staged on the weekend before the UN Climate change Conference in Copenhagen, in clean air we fly is an Invisible Dust project that seeks to re-engage people in the issues around UK air pollution. The work plays with the analogy between sound and invisible airborne pollution. Kaffe Matthews, a world-renowned artist working in sound, has fed statistics about the local air pollution combined with the voices of local children into the recording and filtering of a new music 'composition'. The resulting multi-layered work takes the form of an audience powered audio experiment that will fill Gillett Square. The installation continues 7 -11 December, 12:00 noon - 6:00pm, at The Vortex Jazz Club
