Tannoy

The final assembly of the Tannoy before being transported to Sheffield for the MA assessment by two academics from Trent University. The Tannoy broadcasts an amalgam of industrial sounds from mechanical workshops and production environments creating an immersive audio experience.

The work symbolises the relationship between employer and employee, those in positions of power, authority and influence, and those whose function is to be subservient to that power. The sound conveys a narrative for the spectator who listens in to the transmitted messages which become subsumed within the noise of heavy industrial processes. Like distant echoes or memory of human endeavours the sounds play out through a simple Tannoy system constructed from redundant artefacts.
