The Seafarer – Netia Jones at the Southbank

The Seafarer
The Seafarer was a site specific installation created with cellist Oliver Coates and sound designer David Sheppard for the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain. Based on a translation by Amy Kate Riach of the the Old English poem ‘The Seafarer’, and the ‘Louange à L’Éternité de Jésus’ by Olivier Messiaen, the installation took place in the working boiler rooms and utility corridors deep underneath the Royal Festival Hall from July until September 2011.
