Rain choir
SEBASTIANE HEGARTY
IHab102

A site-specific sound installation created for the crypt of Winchester Cathedral, the rain choir, was composed of field recordings taken from the guttering system of the building. Added to
these percussive voices are recordings of CO2 escaping from fragments of Cathedral limestone dissolving in acid.

Beneath the shrine of St. Swithun the installation presented an occasional pulse of invisible rain; a sound that at once described and was described by, the architecture of the crypt.
The two versions presented here are the original choir and a recital of the work based on the original field-recordings and others made during its installation in the crypt.

With thanks to Dr Simon Park, Sarah Craske and 10 Days Winchester.
