LAUNCH NIGHT, FRIDAY 25 SEPTEMBER
Jacob Kirkegaard with Call & Response present: London Subterraneous
Friday 25th September 6pm—9pm

Artist Jacob Kirkegaard and the UK’s only independent sound art space
Call & Response have collaborated to create a sound installation that
invites the audience to experience the hidden underworld of London’s
water system.

The project takes the work of seventeenth century alchemist and scientist
Athanasius Kircher as inspiration. Kircher created a collection of so
called speaking statues whose spiral mouths would lead out into the
streets of Rome like giant trumpets. London Subterraneous links
Kircher’s ‘speaking trumpets’ to his fascination with geology and
underground reverberations and explore London’s mundus subterraneous.

For this project, special microphones were used to access sounds from a
series of towering, hollow pipes that connect the city’s familiar
terrestrial environment to a lesser-known complex network of sewers and
rivers below. These "stink pipes", erected as safety valves to vent toxic
gases from the Victorian sewer network in the 1860s, allow us to connect
to our past and eavesdrop on the capital’s underground world.  More
