Fanfare for Crossing the Road is an international project that adds ceremony to a common event. In each country I ask musicians – dressed in uniforms and positioned beside the traffic lights – to mimic the digital acoustic crossing sounds that signal the time to cross for the blind. The work began in the spring of 2011 in front of the Albert Memorial in London. It has since been performed in Helsinki, Lisbon, Cardiff, New York and Philadelphia. A Dublin Fanfare will be filmed in 2018.
The work has been shown at Photographic Gallery Hippolyte, Helsinki – 2012; the 4th Wall Film Festival, Pedwaredd Wal, Cardiff – 2012; Plataforma Revólver, Lisbon – 2013; AC Institute, New York – 2014; Icebox Project Space, Philadelphia – 2015; and studio1.1, London - 2018.
