In Stereography: stereophonic geography sound artist Matt Cook focused on the sound and rhythm of a place. Whilst working in Bedford as Artist in Residence with BCA Gallery, Cook walked around the town to discover what makes it tick to create his own playfull Bedford map.
It was Cook’s intention that the slightly eccentric and highly visual Bedford map would be as colourful sonically as it was visually. Trees made from pencils spun majestically on cheap cassette players, toy aircrafts were fitted with speakers and plastic people whizzed around in circles. From this a small urban environment emerged filled with sound and images that captured the character of the town.
