Drowning in the Din... - Matthew Lomax

Written in response to John Constable's Seascape Study: Boat and Storm Sky, 20 July 1828.
'Drowning In The Din...' responds to Constable’s incorporation of the exposed framework into the landscape through an exploration of subtle clicks, breathes, shakes and sharp hand movements; the foundations from which the instruments’ sounds are produced.
