Mark Leckey: BigBoxIndustrialAction

26 Feb

Went to see/hear Mark Leckey’s new commission for Manchester Art Gallery. I enjoyed the overall effect of the Big Box Vs The Industrial metal. The volume was impressive with gut vibrating bass notes. Felt quite ritualistic, a secular ceremony. But not sure about the sound composition as a whole.

BigBoxIndustrialAction, in which a giant soundsystem meets a three-tonne low pressure steam chest on loan from Ellenroad Engine House, near Rochdale, Greater Manchester, home of the world’s largest working steam mill engine.
