SoundClip-8 & Single Cup Headphones – HMDT Music

{

HMDT Music used Blackbox-av to create audio for our First World War Trench Brothers exhibition. Blackbox-av’s equipment enabled us to include two songs for each soldier, created by different schools in Lancashire and London allowing visitors to share different empathetic and musical responses to the same story.

– Tertia Sefton-Green, Creative Director at HMDT Music

A touring exhibition centred around the First World War has recently taken centre stage at Lancashire Maritime Museum, the Flyde Gallery and Clitheroe Castle. HMDT Music’s exhibit Trench Brothers focuses on the lives of eight ethnic minority soldiers from the Indian Army, the British West Indies Regiment and black soldiers fighting with the British Army.

It includes maps tracing where the soldiers had travelled, photographs highlighting key experiences during the war and interactive elements to explore certain aspects of military life. The interactive exhibition is a creative response to the unknown stories of these soldiers and is part of an education project with 3000 children in which 40 schools worked with different composers to set a Letter Home (which the children had written about a given soldier) to music.

Audio Interpretation with Single Cup Headphones and SoundClip-2 at Lancashire Maritime Museum

The ‘memorable and moving’ project has been a huge success, educating visitors and especially the children involved, by using the arts to explore these little-known important stories. The exhibition will visit the National Memorial Arboretum and Newhaven Fort in 2018.
