Need a minute?

QR-based sound installation, creator, 2021

Need a minute? is a series of 6 short sound pieces written for quiet places throughout the Wheatsheaf Hotel. Posters around the pub each ask a question, a challenge, and invite patrons to take a moment to reflect on their state of mind, follow a QR code and listen. Each sound piece is comprised of layered, textural vocal and synth drones, based around one note in the C whole tone scale, creating a sense of blurry rest. Beginning with a recording of an empty Wheaty in pre-covid times, the pieces begin by placing listeners in their embodied location, then moving them to various abstract watery spaces. Need a minute to find an answer? Listen in, maybe you’ll find it here.
