Underground History: The Next Station for Cities & Memories 2016
“Despite living in Dublin I am surprisingly familiar with the London Underground. Like many from Ireland I visit London a lot and even lived and worked there for a while.
Bank station is right in the heart of the historic soul of London; around it are famous landmarks and memories of pivotal past events. Shakespeare, old rhymes, the Thames, The Great Fire, The City, the Blitz, Handel … and beyond. No matter what, London survives and thrives.
As I thought about this project I began to think of the under soil of the city and all the history contained in it and began to imaging the tube train as something like a time machine cutting a swathe through this history, and eventually beyond these bounds and into the unwritten future.
And so the sounds blend an imagined voyage through time encountering historic soundscapes along the way. ”
Part of the project The Next Station, reimagining the sounds of the London Underground and creating the first ever tube sound map. – for more information see http://www.citiesandmemory.com/thenextstation

Prison Songs for Cities & Memory 2016
I heard a theory about the music of the south or the blues. It outlined the many influences from all sorts of sources, in particular through the mixing of cultures while the railroads were being built. Some of the most noticeable influences were Irish traditional Music, African chants coming through work songs, Cajun sounds – bottleneck and steel guitar in particular and even the Chinese scale, possibly heard from the camps of the Chinese workers. All these diverse sources blended to make the songs we recognise today. I wanted o disaggregate the history of these sounds and make a piece combining all the originals as part of the reimagining, reflecting all the different peoples who went into the making of the prison song. Parallel to this I was rehearsing ‘Spem in Alium’ and when I got stuck in the project, this is what gave me the way forward and the inspiration for the final form the piece has taken.
