Sound | Making | Space – Vex Project: Echoes and Loops
18 May 2017, 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
The Bartlett Sound Making Space Doctoral Network focuses on current issues and debates in sound + space + architecture research. We aim to bring together a wider, more diverse group of researchers and practitioners who think about and engage with space and the urban environment through sound and music.

Vex Project: Echoes and Loops
Vex is a curved, fluted concrete house in Stoke Newington designed by Chance de Silva. It's also an unusual collaboration between the architect and the musician and composer Scanner (Robin Rimbaud). Both the music and architecture take as their starting point Erik Satie’s ‘Vexations’ – a looping, repetitive piano work that lasts around 18 hours in continuous performance.
For this evening at The Bartlett, Steve Chance and Robin Rimbaud are reunited to talk about their unique collaboration and what future such collaboartions might bring to both architectural and compostiitonal practice.
