Bell Culture

Bell Culture, 2015
Artist residency, event series and installation.


In September 2015, I conducted a residency at the iconic east London church St John on Bethnal Green. The project explored the relationships between sound and environment, drawing sonorous information directly from the building. I spent the month developing several sound works which responded to the church, its temporary inhabitants and the surrounding area.

The project culminated in an album of field recordings, a film screening of Bells From the Deep (Werner Herzog, 1993), an artist talk, a series of installations, photographs, and live performances from the St John of Hackney Bell Ringers, Hand of Stabs, James Shearman, Mark Wagner and Mutual Extermination Club.
