About

And We'll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love presents new work by London-based artist Ain Bailey. This will include a commissioned audio composition installed in Cubitt’s gallery within a spatial design by Mexico City based designer Clemence Seilles.

And We'll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love takes Ain’s own sonic biography around loss and thinking through how to sonify grief as a starting point. It asks how we might create a collective dialogue around the personal experience of dealing with death and mourning.

This new work has been developed through conversations with eight close friends who have experienced a bereavement. Ain’s own contribution links these together to form nine distinct parts. These nine contributions centre on the sound(s) of that experience - an audio memory, a song, affect or emotion. The process of working with and from these recordings asks how we think about death sonically and produces a collective composition. The number nine is significant as it draws on the Caribbean funerary tradition of Nine-Nights, in which a wake takes place over several days.
