KINGS CROSS SOUNDS

by prophecy / How to Tattoo / 0 Comments



Made for Central Saint Martins to celebrate their move into the heart of Kings Cross. Shown at the KX Culture: Stories/Images/Sound exhibition at the Lethaby Gallery earlier this year.

How do sounds define time and place?

It’s one of the most culturally diverse and cosmopolitan areas in London. It has a mixed history and is, of course, a world famous center of transport.

Less acknowledged is the audio conflict of its geography – of its commuters, cultures, students, public spaces, rails, roads – it’s physical and social connections.

From the concentrated peace of a tattoo parlor, clubbers dancing in Egg to basketball in a cage in Somers Town – Kings Cross Sounds is a visceral, visual soundscape; a kaleidoscope of clashing audio celebrating the dawn of a new era for the university.

Directors – Joe Talbot/Sam Talbot, Editor – Will Hodgson, Camera – Joe Talbot, Sound design – Nick Ryan. Shot on Canon 5D over a 1 week period in August 2010 with a variety of Canon and Sigma primes.
