The SoundLife London Talk with Martyn Ware at Westminster Reference Library took place on Thursday 4 June 2009 on the Evening of the Launch of SoundLife London in Leicester Square Gardens.
SoundLife London is the first exclusively sound-based public art work of this scale in the UK.
It is a unique sound composition created especially for Leicester Square Gardens by sound artist and musician Martyn Ware, which reveals the 3-dimensional sound world that surrounds us at all times in the most fascinating and diverse city in the world.
The installation plays from 9am until 7pm every day from 4 to 14 June 2009.
SoundLife London is an hour long, looped ‘soundscape’ mixing found and collected sounds with an ambient musical composition. It aims to augment the everyday background noise of Leicester Square with a distilled ‘sonic essence’ of London – a dynamic soundscape of familiar places and feelings associated with Westminster and beyond.
A variety of sonic themes are introduced at ten minute intervals each hour throughout the day.
