Musarc in The Silver Building
As part of London Festival of Architecture 2017 composer Benjamin Tassie and poet Annie Freud presented a surround-sound live choir installation at the disused Silver Building at Silvertown West (DLR). The evening featured a tour of the space by architects, SODA, choir performances throughout the building, and a bar until late.
A new text by Annie Freud responded to the narratives of the building and the Royal Docks, creatively re-imagining the layers of history, changing communities and varied voices connected to the area. Musarc, who have performed at places such as Turner Contemporary, Whitechapel Gallery and Bold Tendencies, performed this Site-specific piece to immerse audiences in this poetry.
