As part of his residency with Mary Duggan Architects, composer Benjamin Tassie has created a new musical work translating the history and topography of a 13th Century church site in the City of London into music for a Medieval instrument, the rebec, and voices. Accrete’s harmony is based on the frequency response of the existing building’s bell tower – a measurement of pitches that resonate or are dampened by the space’s unusual acoustic – while the music’s structure is a translation of the schedule of Mary Duggan Architect’s works on the site with developer HGG London.

For LFA2021, Tassie and Duggan will share Accrete as an intimate installation, presented on a vintage reel-to-reel tape machine in the bell tower that inspired the music. The work is 15 minutes long, with a brief introduction. Capacity is strictly limited to four people per showing. Ticket sales will raise money for Help Musicians UK.
