The Sound Behind the Project

The Sound Behind the Project is a short selection of tracks that have informed the concept of All Of Us Have A Sense Of Rhythm, developed by Christine Eyene, presented at David Roberts Art Foundation from 5th June to 1st Aug. 2015, as part as the Curators’ Series #8. This evolving playlist, developed during the course of the exhibition, draws from the cultural heritage and rhythmic patterns of Bikutsi music (Cameroon) and evolves into a variety of modern and contemporary percussive and electronic genres.

See All Of Us Have A Sense Of Rhythm exhibition leaflet, including the curator’s essay, here.
