David Byrne Presents Found Sound Installation
Did you know London has a tempo of 122.86 beats per minute? So says musician David Byrne, of Talking Heads and solo career fame. Byrne’s new sound installation , titled “Get It Away,” builds a song around sampled sounds recorded in the city.
“It turned out that most of the sounds seemed to converge around a common rhythm,” Byrne says, “I let the sounds dictate the groove, the tempo, and then I simply played along.”
The installation is part of Queen Elizabeth Hall’s “A Room for London” residency project. The “room” in the name is a one-bedroom installation on the roof of Queen Elizabeth Hall, which hosts artists and displays art and music. Byrne resided there for three days while crating “Get It Away.”
