Kiernan Robinson – A Little Red House on Arbordale Street


This is a piece about memory and place. About those who have loved us, and shaped us. And about how they continue to move us, even when they are gone.

Through the speakers overhead you will hear slowed down versions of four different symphonic and choral works; Benjamin Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols, Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3, and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 and Symphony No. 5. Each of these was selected from a collection of CD’s given to me from my grandmother after my grandfather died.They represent a small fraction of over 40+ years of musical love. Six originally composed pieces can be heard in a pair of headphones in the corner of the room. These have been shaped out of a shared love of music between myself and my grandmother. Feel free to decorate the room as you see fit using the materials provided or through materials you bring. I encourage those of you who play instruments to improvise in the space while wearing the headphones at any time.
