I was asked by Davide Quayola and Keri Elmsly to create a sound concept for this work for Milan Design Week 2013. After a long day in the foley studio I had enough stretchy material to build up this sound design.
I was asked by Keri Elmsly and Katie Paterson to recreate and enhance the environment that her art work Campo del Cielo, Field of the Sky was created in. I did this by adding sounds from space and treated foley sounds.
A large Campo del Cielo meteorite, which has been travelling through space and time for over four and a half billion years, has been cast, melted, and then re-cast back into a new version of itself, retaining its original form. A newly formed yet still ancient meteorite, still imbued with its cosmic history. The iron, small rocks, metal and dust inside becomes reformed, and the layers of its cosmic lifespan - the warping of space and time, the billions of years of pressure and change, formation and erosion - become collapsed, transformed and renewed.
In years to come, the meteorite will be launched into space.
The artwork was commissioned by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and DREAM for the Olympic Exhibition Road Show 2012.
I was asked by the director Grant Major to create a sound design that could tell an emotional story without using music,by treating the field sound recordings I was able to help enhance the protagonists head-space without melody.
