Salter's Company Garden, One London Wall Place, 24 May - 14 June
In Pleasure Garden, music and environmental sounds combine to create a listening garden – a gently interactive instrument. Elegant audio design transforms the garden into a place of musical play, of repose and delight.
Visitors are invited into the music and natural architecture, to play the garden, to stroll or recline with friends and strangers.
The garden responds to movement – diﬀerent layers of the composition are triggered by presence, and move subtly across the space as people explore it, or sit a while and listen.
Inspired by the story and music of the 17th-century musician, composer, improviser and nobleman Jacob van Eyck, Pleasure Garden combines excerpts from his work, set within newly composed music by Genevieve Lacey and Jan Bang.
