Soundtrap V: Bruce Gilbert and BAW – Diluvial at Beaconsfield

8 September – 30 October 2011

Thursday – Sunday, 11am – 5pm

Upper Gallery & Canteen Gallery FlatScreens

Wednesday 7 September 6-9pm: Exhibition Preview

Friday 28 October 7pm: Post-diluvial performance (Part of the South London Art Map LAST Fridays)

Local preoccupations with rising sea levels fuel Diluvial – a work that dwells on the dynamics of flood geology and global warming; creation stories and climate change.

Diluvial is an evolving soundscape and environment by Bruce Gilbert (ex Wire) and Beaconsfield ArtWorks (David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin). Fifth in the Soundtrap series, this new sonic work was initiated on the Suffolk coast for Faster than Sound, Aldeburgh Music 2011 and is now developed for London.

A new soundtrack will be created on a weekly basis throughout the exhibition and presented within a changing physical environment.
