Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

We were engaged by Royal Botanic Gardens Kew to design and deliver the music for Chihuly Nights, a series of 33 evening viewings of their Chihuly exhibition (August – October 2019).

We commissioned a new work by the American composer Nico Muhly, and engaged a team of musicians to improvise live over a recording of this work, providing an ever-changing soundscape to accompany the exhibition, reflecting not only the nature of the artworks on display, but also the setting of Kew Gardens.

Kew required an interactive element to the music in the Pavilion Restaurant. We designed a different reading of Muhly’s music, re-inventing it Ibiza-style, and encouraging those attending the exhibition to take part in the performance through the use of virtual and real percussion instruments.
