Lullaby Factory comprises an intricate labyrinth of metal listening pipes and gramophones that play out a selection of soothing melodies by composer and sound artist Jessica Curry. These sounds can be heard through height-level pipes near the hospital canteen, and via the hospital radio station.
Studio Weave architects Je Ahn and Maria Smith were inspired by the maze of drainage systems and pipes that already cover the numerous, enclosed walls of the hospital. Here, attention is drawn to this often overlooked space by creating a fantastical and interactive, “curious world (for hospital patients, visitors and staff) to peer onto.” The duo have re-used silver, bronze and gold-colored metal gauges and horns, recovered from the hospital’s former boiler house, to create an incredible audio installation that reaches nearly 10 floors in height.
Marco Fusinato’s sequence of drawings ‘Black Mass Implosions’ transform avant-garde musical notation into new graphical interpretations. The systematic connection of individual notes and musical processes to central points within the notation reconfigure the temporal and sequential reading of scores.
