Mem Morrison

Underscore by Mem Morrison

Underscore recreates a human version of a specific sound environment: a river, a park or even a building site, with a group of participants that reinterpret original sounds recorded in their environment.

For the avenue of trees in Wandsworth Park, Mem Morrison and sound designer and long-time collaborator Andy Pink created a sonic journey through the River Thames, inviting audiences to celebrate the varied life and mystery of the river.

After recording sounds at several underwater points along the Thames, Mem created a human version of the river with a group of participants who took part in a series of workshops. Playing with the imagery of boat sign-writing and echoing the passing rowing races, Underscore heightened the architecture of the alignment of trees, both visually and aurally.

A wonderful opportunity to participate in an artwork and perform in public – a first for me!
