Future (Westminster)

Westminster station reimagined by Jessica Beechey.

"This piece explores the concept of ‘future’, venturing ‘into’ as well as ‘back’, taken from a point of discussion between an adult and children in the original recording. The piece draws inspiration from the recording location, Westminster. ‘Future’ imagines a dystopian fate for our politics, with fragmented speech becoming drowned out by the crescendo of aggressive drones, to an ominous and unknowing conclusion."

Part of our project The Next Station, reimagining the sounds of the London Underground and creating the first ever tube sound map. August 2016 - for more information see www.citiesandmemory.com/thenextstation
