A sound-art piece, presenting fragments of place and memory - soundmarks - from a short, often-made journey from platform 6 of Glasgow Central Station...through the concourse of that magnificent, cavernous, resonant structure...down through the city’s underground tunnels...resurfacing by Kelvingrove Park...and...back again:
...the air pressure releases, the announcements, the footsteps, the calls of passers-by and train assistants ... the underground tunnels seem to throb and breathe ... the cash splayed out, the turnstile admitting traveller after traveller ... subterranean water drops, the scream of metal on metal, the shaking carriages ... on to birdcalls overhead...
The four movements of the work trace this journey; the pitches of the haunting background drones are derived from the formant frequencies of the vowels of Glasgow Green Station.
Stations of the Clyde was composed for the ‘Stations of the Green’ exhibition curated by The Drouth’s Johnny Rodger and Mitch Miller, focusing on Turner Prize winning GSA alumnus Douglas Gordon’s demolished public artwork ‘Proof’ at the remains of Glasgow Green Station. The exhibition ran at New Glasgow Society 1307 Argyle St. Glasgow, 26th April – 17th May 2013
Stations of the Clyde is dedicated to Patricia Donald, a true daughter of the Clyde.
Composed by Stephen Davismoon. Produced by Clydesdale and Inman.
