Sound + Art + Roger Eno
Norwich Arts Centre was once a church called St Swithin’s (named for St Swithun – choose your favourite spelling). It has experienced many uses through the years, first as a church, then a school, a warehouse, and for magic-lantern performances. The Arts Centre we know still contains many obvious clues to it’s former lives.
This installation combines Roger Eno’s work as a BAFTA-nominated composer for film and image with a closer look at and celebration of the location of Norwich Arts Centre.
40 images taken around Norfolk will be accompanied by soundtracks written by East Anglian composer Roger Eno. Either wet or fair weather, the theme to be determined by the weather on the 15th July. The 40 pieces for the other weather theme will be destroyed, never to be heard or seen.
The installation will run for 40 days, a new image daily.
In addition, a poem can be found woven through the images.
The first 40 visitors will be given the music for each day’s piece as a keepsake.
