David Tudor’s Rainforest IV

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tudor’s seminal work from the 1970s is a template for what is now called sound art today. It involves resonating sound sculptures, audience interactivity, collaboration, use of found objects and feedback loops and networks.

The group installation/performance took place in Area 10 Project Space in Peckham. It was a former Whitten’s warehouse which was used as an event space for several years before being closed for demolition and subsequent redevelopment.

All the material used for the sound sculptures were found within the vicinity of Area 10 which included remains from the timber warehouse, discarded objects from building and development sites and general junk. The event took place within the backdrop of the changing landscape of Peckham and the tide of gentrification that was to follow.
