British Business Embassy
The UK’s top designers and artists were invited to contribute to delivering a world class creative showcase that will play host to some of the most globally influential business leaders during the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics Games at the British Business Embassy. Scanner was commissioned for the only sound work in Lancaster House, on the Mall in central London which is used extensively for government hospitality.
He presented Anthem, a sonic work that expands upon the British National Anthem, now a choral work of ten minutes duration and situated in the lavatories of the building, the only guaranteed room that every delegate and visitor will visit :-D
Anthem takes the UK National Anthem, God Save The Queen, into a slow moving choral work, filled with empty spaces.
Over 3,000 Government Minsters, business leaders and policy-makers from the UK and around the world will come through the doors of Lancaster House. These events will allow businesses and Governments to exchange views and ideas, discuss local and international economic challenges, develop strong global partnerships for future growth and showcase the best of British business to the world.
Since the work can only be heard inside this high security building I wanted to share it with everyone so you can listen to it in the comfort of your very own toilet or elsewhere :-D
