Filament, indoor

A new version of Filament was commissioned for a staircase in Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre. The installation ran from 29th October to end of November 2006 as part of Traverse Cubed, http://www.traverse.co.uk/show_detail.php?id=398

As audiences head down to see a performance, the copper wire curtain is switched on and sounds reverberated up and down the staircase “pre-mixing” sounds extracted from rehearsals of the play they are about to see.

On the 29th October 2006, the installation was “performed live” as part of the opening celebrations of the Traverse Cubed events.

This project was supported by http://www.7hings.co.uk.
