Further details about the content of the Gramophone Fountain Installation will be appearing here throughout the weekend - it's a work in progress, do check back...
Deisgned by ICMUS founder and Guildhall Professor Mike Roberts, built by Seth Scott and composed/installed in collaboration with students of the Guildhall School's Electronic Music Studios
Revolution 360
These tracks are stereo mixes of the main piece which unpacks nearly 360 years of classical music history in a collage of 'stuck' record grooves.  Two versions can be heard - the full compilation of all 24 gramophones and a more focused quintet version (representing 1 fountain).
For those interested in the detailed 'composition' brief for this piece, a pdf of the collaborative process is included for download. (Please bear in mind that this is the original brief as distributed to students of EMS in March 17 - the exact character of the piece has evolved as part of the process of completion.
