Additional Information

Ronan Point was a tower block in Canning Town, typical of the kind of cheap and quickly raised housing constructed in the 60s. On 15 May 1968 a gas explosion in one of the flats killed four people and left many more injured and homeless. My piece features retuned strings, field recordings from the site and surrounding area, drones and processed sounds to reflect on an event that was a traumatic and transformative episode in the history of architecture, social housing and the relationship between society and environment.
