    The South Bank Centre is a complex of music and art venues on the South Bank of the River Thames, in London, which mainly comprises the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Hayward Gallery. There's always lots going on in and around the Centre, especially at holiday times. I wanted to try mixing music with live sound - hopefully it doesn't sound too choppy!

                  • ShellOutSounds perform "Riddle of the Niger Delta" at South Bank in protest at Shell sponsorship

                    Musical campaign group, ShellOutSounds, are performing a series of actions at Shell-sponsored arts events to highlight the human rights, ecological and democratic abuses of the oil corporation. They ask why arts bodies like the South Bank Centre are associating themselves with such philistine trans-nationals, and their performances and leafletting aim to undermine the subliminal advertising that Shell relies on through its ever-present logo on concert programmes and promotional material. Highlighting that Shell cynically sponsor the arts as a cheaper and more effective alternative to expensive advertising, they compare the tiny donation given to the South Bank against the huge sums given to the Nigerian military to keep control over people who have lost their land to pollution and ecological devastation. The footage was recorded at a rehearsal on the 21st and at the performances on the 22nd April 2013. Leaflets were handed out to the audience (there to see Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra), and feedback from the onlookers was overwhelmingly positive, with several asking how they can help the campaign to stop the South Bank from entering into these sordid arrangements. The security head engaged in dialogue with the protestors and agreed to feedback the reactions of punters and to facilitate further contact and discussion with the South Bank management.

                      Alongside a host of audiovisual artists and VJs, the production & artistic team GaiaNova and Showskills have created one of the biggest and most ambitious video projection pieces seen in the UK. Using archive footage sourced with the help of the British Film Institute, the display tells the history of the Southbank from the Festival of Britain to the present day. The building becomes an illuminated canvas, with archive film and cutting edge digital art interlocking with live footage and audience contributions to create a piece that tells the Southbank’s story – its history, its present, and its future. Past and present fuse in a site-specific piece that opens up new possibilities for the future – with the exterior of the building transformed into both a gallery space and an element of the artwork itself. Artists commissioned or contributing material for this project include the Light Surgeons, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Laborg, D-Fuse, VJ Spetto, Sumit Sarkar, Jules Shapter , Border Line, Showskills and Obsidian Graphics.
