All ears…

We’re back again at the De La Warr today for Part 3 of our participatory project – recording the voice of the Pavilion through the sounds of what’s happening here during the Warhol Is Here exhibition. With the sound of Christmas carols echoing through the building, this session has been mellow and definitely festive. Here’s what we heard…

Inside:
calm christmas music
clinking glasses
drone of people talking
Outside:
crash of waves
clatter of skateboards
screech of the seagulls

And finally thanks to David Wright for this beautiful poem inspired by the sounds of Warhol:

Vibrations in essence, resonate around and through me,
Music dances, filling the moments between chatter,
Humming creeks split the gentle motion of the sea,
Voice over voice, try to please, try to flatter,
Warhol on black, speaks in dark tone,
As the door slams behind him on a time that is gone,
Broken clicks of heels, as they stride cross the floor,
Out onto the sea and the sound of the shore.

  1. Cafe Bar food was excellent!Cray fish sandwich – deliciously fresh bread {multigrain}, great filling and the side salad of shredded root vegetables/onions/lettuce {Rocket +} "just right"! Well done and thank you. You probably serve the best food in Bexhill.

  2. I very much enjoyed the exibition. Andy Warhol's style was innovative of the era and has helped inspire photoshop and other photo-based medium. I like his use of psychodyalic neon colours, it really causes metamorphosisof mundane and ordinariy into a modernist pop art style.
