History

Installation which was a result of the artist CFCCA organised residency to the K11 Art Village in Wuhan, China.

At the residency, Brown explored the connection between tonal languages, such as Mandarin, and music, but also found a link between ancient Chinese poetry and heavily regulated social media networks of contemporary China. 'Ode to the Red Cliffs' by 11th century poet Su Shi was read aloud by 50 Wuhan residents, and these recordings were then subject to software analysis to generate a series of music scores. The work existed entirely in virtual form and distributed via Chinese social media platform WeChat.

In the installation at the CFCCA, the sound pieces were re-assembled into a physical installation and an accompanying performance on 28th September.
