The Seafarer

Royal Festival Hall, South Bank
Boiler rooms and corridors

 

The Seafarer was a site specific installation created with
cellist Oliver Coates and sound designer David Sheppard
for the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain. Based on
a translation by Amy Kate Riach of the the Old English poem
'The Seafarer', and the 'Louange à L'Éternité de Jésus' by Olivier
Messiaen, the installation took place in the working boiler rooms
and utility corridors deep underneath the Royal Festival Hall
from July until September 2011.
