Roger Eno


At Norwich Arts Centre from 15th of July 2013 for 40 days 

A project funded by a 'Grant for the Arts' - Arts Council England

 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.


St Swithun's day if thou dost rain

For forty days it will remain

St Swithun's day if thou be fair

For forty days 'twill rain nae mare

 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.
