This work is derived from five hours spent at Enderby's Wharf on the Thames foreshore at Greenwich, recording the river flow and tides in the area under the Enderby’s Wharf jetty. These recordings were used to create a series of contrasting soundscapes (Litus Expromo) exploring rhythm and frequency. A first version of the work, Litus Expromo External, was played through speakers attached to the Wharf over the weekend of 13th and 14th September 2014, stopping passers by in their tracks and making them question the veracity of sounds they were hearing. On the evening of Saturday 13th, members of the public and the Hackney Secular Singers choir were invited to perform the vocal work Fundamental 94 based on the resonant frequency under the jetty. At the gallery, all five sections of Litus Expromo were available on a listening post: 1. Fundamental 94 (4’53”), 2. Tidal Liminal (4’02”), 3. Hammer 143 (5’57”), 4. Over Heard (4’58”), 5. Deep Breath (6’19”). The work was again played through speakers in the Kings Presence Chamber at the Queen’s House on September 26th 2014.
