Chinatown My Chinatown
Sound Collage by Mr Campbell
& Ms Kenny, The Sound Agents.
This project is financially supported by the City of
Liverpool to celebrate the success of the Shanghai Expo
05 –11 February 2011. 11– 4pm.
The Dome: The Black– E
1 Great George Street, Liverpool L1 5EW.
Over a restaurant table somewhere in Liverpool 1 Ms Kenny
and Mr. Campbell talked of the space they occupied, the
architecture, the ambient sound, the conversations, recalling
memories of the Mills brothers on a juke box way back in time,
Chinatown my Chinatown in 2/4 time. Time shifts and thoughts
drift towards the streets and mapping a journey through the
moments and snapshots of Chinatown.
Sometime later they meet and retrace each other’s steps.
Each took a different route crossing broad themes of community,
neighbourhoods, of gentrification and desolation, seeking out
the penny tray leftovers and the in-betweens. Interested in
exploring every perspective, mapping out a future as The Sound
Agents an invitation is extended to artists and researchers to
contribute an impression of Chinatown.
