Sonorama

Molitor, C. (2015). Sonorama *

Abstract

Located on the train journey between London St Pancras and Margate, Sonorama is an audio work that offers sounds and voices for the otherwise silent view from the train, downloadable as an App for listening with headphones. Imagining the journey itself as the ‘score’ Sonorama is a cycle of works and collected interviews, readings and original archival material which respond to the social history and present of the route. With each track relating to a different point or area along the train line, the work was informed through a collaboration with historian David Hendy and the British Library Sound Archives. The tracks imagine topics as diverse as visio-centricity, Roman history and hop-picking with a corresponding variety of contributors such as flautist Jan Hendrickse, poet Lemn Sissay, Saxophonist Evan Parker and writer Charlotte Higgins.
