Inspired by the shapes and sounds of Kingston upon Hull, Where to Build in Stone is an audio-visual project that draws on the sonic and visual backdrop of an urban landscape.
Performed with a variety of electronic and acoustic instruments, the piece is a vivid soundscape embroidered with evocative melodies that evoke a mysterious and oddly beautiful side of the city.
The visual counterpart explores Hull over the course of a day, focusing on the quiet drama in the scenes that are everywhere and overlooked: the familiar seen from an unfamiliar perspective.
This piece is part of PRS Foundation's New Music Biennial 2019. For more information about the project and to download the New Music Biennial album, please visit our project page: https://www.nmcrec.co.uk/new-music-biennial-2019
