An experiment on phychological topography and how to create a sonar map of a specific place. The piece was inspired by the fluctuation of open and closed space around the area of King’s Cross train station in London. The surrounding environment of the station provides much creative interest as it combines tall building blocks with headquarters of international companies, like Google and YouTube, wide open areas for pedestrians and designated areas for nature to grow. There is also great fluctioation on the flow of people, from masses of crowds commuting to the station, to empty alleys of solitude.
It was used in a promenade performance, where the audience would wear headphones listening to the track while travelling around a designated area at King’s Cross.
KX Flow is a response to the architectural, topographical and emotional flow of the area.
