Town and Country at The Other Flower Show

Town and Country at The Other Flower Show

Victoria and Albert Museum,
London, UK
29 May – 11 July 2004

Shown as part of The Other Flower Show held in the V&A Garden, ‘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 later reinstalled as part of the 2005 Regent Street Festival in the heart of London's busy shopping district.

In partnership with UP Projects, V&A, BoConcept, and Lister.
