The Beat of Time

Creating soundscapes - history expressed through music

The Beat of Time

16 – 20 Oct 2018 – New Walk Museum, Leicester

Artists: Jonathan Reed, Julie Maxwell, Hari Trivedi, Thure Gade Johansen and Miranda Booth

We at Drum and Brass have been creating some amazing soundscapes at the New Walk Museum. This consists of working in a different room everyday! We started off by working the dinosaur room, then moved to the Victorian gallery, Star Wars, wild animals and the new Egyptian exhibition. All kicked off on the 16th Oct and will last till the 20th. So there’s still time folks to join in the fun!

The project has also had some great feedback and interaction with the audience of all ages where they can join in by playing some percussion with us, creating artwork, singing or dancing! We are implementing feedback daily and are keeping a log of all photos and videos. We also are getting this professionally filmed and edited to present back to you all. Here are some photos so far.
