Through Passages of Time soundtracks buildings and areas of London that no longer exist.
Small places stumbled upon by accident, traced on maps, and illustrated in Georgian prints. Frequently visited pubs that have been rebuilt and renamed, the shipbreakers yard decorated with wooden figureheads at Baltic Wharf, or the Thames Watermen living in the shadow of the Hawksmoor-designed church at Horselydown.
Lost places re-imagined and brought to life using clusters of sequenced Moogs, off-kilter electronics, vibes, and Mellotron – capturing the essence of the dark city and its more bucolic outer suburbs.
This is a plaint to an older, stranger London that is quickly becoming priced out and forgotten.
Look carefully and clues to the ancient past can still be found.
