The Storm Cone by Laura Daly, with music by Lucy Pankhurst, has been commissioned through a partnership between the University of Salford Art Collection and Metal. Launched as part of Estuary 2021 it is an immersive artwork for NetPark in Chalkwell Park, Southend, that unearths lost bandstands and their buried past. The work will first guide you to the site where the Chalkwell bandstand once stood and here you will be immersed in a breath-taking 360˚ brass band performance. As you move amongst the absent musicians you will be taken on a journey that charts the fading away of a brass band during the interwar years and into eight spatial sound works, where the fragile solo phrases of each musician merge and mutate in new environments. The Storm Cone will simultaneously be presented in Peel Park, Salford.
Laura Daly is a multi-award-winning artist who creates site-specific and site-related artworks that range significantly in scale.
Tremor at the Edge of Vision: a site-specific walking exploration of The Peregrine is an experimental work that takes its starting point from the masterpiece of nature writing by J.A. Baker.
