Site Specific Work | Celestial Music 2008 | Bristol Beacon, Bristol
Conceived as a constellation of musical genres, careful mapped to indicate musical connections and hybridization. This site-specific installation used over 3500 music metal badges that were embedded into 234 metal discs attached to the wall surface. The discs are were in 4 different metals, aluminum, copper, bronze and steel and correspond to 3 archetypal circular musical storage formats, the Single, CD and Vinyl Album.
I was interested in the duality of terms such as chart (music composition or retail list/astrological map) and Star (musician/heavenly grouping). Celestial Music is also reflective of the multiplicity of performers who have performed at Bristol Beacon throughout the years.
Listen deep within you
And look into the infinity
Of Space and Time.
Hear the song of the Stars,
The voice of Numbers;
The harmony of the spheres
