about

On visiting Loughborough on a hot summer’s day in 2007, Kaffe met 17 year old Laura on a bench in Queen’s Park. A resident of neighboroughing Sileby, Laura visited Loughborough every day to visit her grandfather, attend college, and work. She shared some insider stories about Loughborough with Kaffe as the two of them walked to Cino Cafe in Carillon Court Shopping Centre. Viewing 2 is structured around this walk, and is inspired by the multiple silent cartographies that inhabit our minds as we navigate our daily lives. It was made using a compositional strategy developed by Kaffe, in which documentation is made of journeys: colours, names and numbers of streets encountered are recorded, and used as a trigger to select specific sounds.
