Included with an annual ticket

As part of our summer series celebrating the theme of Vitality: The Human Landscapes of Henry Moore, we’ve commissioned artist and composer felix taylor to create an immersive soundscape to interact with on the Bloomberg Connects App.

felix has spent time at Henry Moore Studio & Gardens gathering field recordings, composing and creating unique audio to be experienced digitally and in the grounds during a visit.

His composition reflects the play between the minimal, abstract forms of Moore’s sculpture against the organic disorder of the nature surrounding them.

The soundscape is intended to become part of the already rich sonic environment that the surrounding nature in the gardens provides. We encourage you to listen to the three tracks out loud, so that each can mingle with the birdsong, sheep bleating and even other devices around you playing the piece at the same time.

In addition, felix has created a captioned video piece to interpret and accompany the work with words; adding another dimension and access point for audiences, and developing this part of his practice.

Tickets

The soundscape is included with an annual ticket.

You will need to download the Bloomberg Connects app to experience the full soundscape.
