The Desire Machine

The Desire Machine – Sept 2014 + July 2015 + where next….

This is a collaborative performance work made with the performance company the Arbonauts. Lee developed the sound design and made a live sound performance at each show.

We performed an R and D piece at the Brunel shaft in Rotherhithe Sept 2014 and then ran the finished performance for 10 consecutive nights in July 2015.

Lee found the standing waves that truly brought the shafts acoustic properties to light as well as improvising live during the shows with a range of sounds recorded in both the shaft itself and using the desire machine (a large revolving scaffolding structure).

The whole sound composition and design was a response to the space.

A very creative process and performance that received very favourable reviews and has been nominated for an award.
