Anthem

British Business Embassy
Lancaster House, London

Summer 2012

Sound installation

Set up to acccompany the Olympics taking place in London, The British Business Embassy, sought to present the best in British design and innovation. Scanner was invited as the solitary sound artist to show his work amongst the finest designers, artists and creatives of the UK.

The sound installation explored an idea of the ensemble voice in a choral work, connecting tradition, celebration and digital arts in a deceptively playful manner, using a deconstructedversion of the British National Anthem. Playfully the work was installed in the public toilets to ensure that everyone, no matter who they might be, would experience the work in its full glory.
