Musicity London

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Musicity invites musicians to choose a building and then create new songs and compositions inspired by the design, history or their personal connections to that place.

The new track is then available for free streaming or download via the new, free Musicity app on any smartphone, but only at that particular location, so using the ubiquitous technology used by millions to consume songs to make a deeper connection with the music.

Running from 8-10 September, the Musicity London event will focus on Southwark.

Musicians with strong connections to the area are making music to be collected by exploring the streets with the Musicity app; and the buildings themselves will become venues for live performances and discussions.

Each Southwark location has been chosen and tracks created. Artists and their buildings of choice:

Sean O'Hagan – Peckham Library;
Moses Boyd – Canada Water Bus Station
Throwing Shade – Borough Market
Stick in the Wheel – Finnish Church Rotherhithe
Hejira – Time and Talents, Bermondsey Street
William Doyle – The Shard
patten – Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre.
