Musicity x Culture Mile

Musicity

Musicity x Culture Mile is a project that encourages a musical and architectural exploration of Culture Mile.

Culture Mile have commissioned ten artists to create ten individual new tracks in response to a building, area or aspect of the city that inspires them. The pieces use sound mapping data gathered by acoustic experts ARUP to explore the intrinsic connection between architecture and sound. All ten of the new tracks have been geo-targeted to the areas they were written in response to, so visitors can truly connect with the music in the places and spaces that inspired them. 

Throughout the summer Musicity x Culture Mile will host a series of talks showcasing a selection of the project’s composers giving you the opportunity to meet the artists and explore this unique project of architecture and music composition. These events will be taking place within the Life Rewired Hub on Level G.

Three of these commissions are based within the Barbican Centre and can be found on Lakeside, Club Stage (Level 1) and the Sculpture Court (Level 2). Each of the three pieces can also be experienced alongside an audio-reactive, virtual reality 360 film experience produced by Ameoba Illobia and Dissolving Path.
