Town and Country Festival

Town and Country Festival

Regent Street,
London, UK
4 September 2005

Shown as part of London's Regent Street Festival, ‘Town and Country’ was a three dimensional immersive sound installation contained within an everyday garden shed.

Composed by Vince Clarke and Martyn Ware of Illustrious, the pre recorded piece played inside the shed consisted of 3D sound recordings of various real and imagined British countryside locations that have no evidence of human intervention, edited together to form a hypnotic continuum of shifting atmospheres.

‘Town and Country’ was first installed in 2004 at The Other Flower Show which was held in the V&A Garden.
