Curated by: Anna Walker

Soundforge continues the Museum’s SoundCraft series with a multimedia installation, the result of a two-year collaboration between metalsmith Gabriel Craig and composer Michael Remson. The installation combines video, audio, and sculptural elements in an interactive piece that explores forging metal as an act of fabrication and percussion. Audiences are invited to use custom hand-carved wooden mallets to play hand-forged steel keyed instruments. As each key is tuned to complement the musical score, it is through striking the keys that viewers successfully engage and complete the work.
