Voice and 5 string cello

This is part of a project by Artangel – inviting people to read (or write) a piece about London and perform it in a specially arranged room high overlooking the Thames.

Jarvis Cocker (frontman from Pulp and now BBC Radio 6 presenter) chose t0 read segments from the novel “Heart of Darkness”, accompanied by unrehearsed playing of a very special custom-made 5 string cello played by Philip Sheppard.  After 4 minutes of friendly discussion, they get right to it.  Mysterious sounds of wateriness and history ensue.
