Launching to coincide with Nocturnal Creatures, Musicity × Sculpture in the City will enliven 10 sites from Aldgate to Shoreditch, with newly commissioned audio tracks, ranging from modern classical to globally inspired soundscapes, generously supported by Brookfield Properties. Musicity × Sculpture in the City allows visitors to experience architecture-inspired music and sound art in the very place that sparked its creation.
Once you are at one of the sites, you can listen to the track simply by using your own headphones and the web app here.
Please note that all events must be booked in advance online, by visiting the Musicity x Sculpture in the City website.
