Bassline: London

Graeme Miller

See and hear the recorded testimonies of 15 local participants based on their journey around the Barbican complex with a double-bassist. These moving and intimate accounts reveal their memories, associations and perceptions of the area, capturing the vicinity’s hidden characteristics. A solo bassline based on a work by Henry Purcell (to mark the 350th anniversary of this London-born composer) underscores the piece.
Presenting a new awareness of the City’s landscape, Bassline: London is a formal exposition of momentary perception and layered meaning in an urban environment.
Co-commissioned by barbicanbite09. Part of CREATE 09, part of the Barbican's Do Something Different Weekend, part of Open Weekend.
