  Work Details  
  TG play this Friday at Architecural Association. Thee idea is we are in a large cube, cage of scaffolding about 8 feet above ground in a yard which is surrounded by brick builings. Yard floor is painted white, large 7 feet high mirrors lie at angles in yard. Black polythene roof on cage. To hear us play you have to look out of all thee windows of old brick buildings, or lean off flat roofs (they HAVE got railings). We hope to get a video camera inside cage with us, so to see us you have to go back inside builings which will have monitors all around corridors and rooms but no sound, just image. Its at night, so well have halogen lamps with us, so large shadows will be cast across yard onto mirrors, people looking also in mirrors all fragmented and fused. Very Industrial as its outdoors, night, right next to Tottenham Court Road and theatre section/traffic section of central London, at roof level both sound sources will blend.
