The Music Room

For her Windows commission the violinist and composer Clare Connors created a live musical soundtrack devised in response to, and simultaneously performed to, the immediate Archway context. Clare gathered material from her visitors including their favourite songs, and from the street, reacting to it directly with new improvised material which she then performed in impromptu and announced free concerts. The Music Room encouraged a new aural encounter with Junction Road that reframed the experience of being in the street. Walking away from the space, the music left with you, becoming the soundtrack to that specific moment in a place. Listen to Fly here:
