Adam Benmakhlouf has been commissioned to make a sound work for Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s beacon tower. This new work will draw on Benmakhlouf’s knowledge and experience of ESW’s building and surrounding environment as well as the principals of its experimental Schools Programme on which he’s been an assistant for two-years.
The work will be a collage of field recordings, and accumulated audio and music, gathered in a structure that echoes ESW’s unique building and reflects the ethos through which primary school pupils are introduced to contemporary art’s ideas and processes. It will embody the planning, spontaneity and responsiveness demanded of the context and participants.
The work will be installed in the beacon tower, an iconic landmark which completes ESW’s open courtyard. Influenced by signalling towers and factory cooling vents, the beacon tower is visible from the heights of the city centre.
