Award-winning and BASCA nominated composer and sound artist Emily Peasgood’s Requiem for Cross Bones is an evocative composition, sound installation and series of sculptures. It senses movement and responds to visitors, triggering music and sound. Commissioned to exhibit in June 2018 at the infamous Cross Bones graveyard in London’s Bankside, it acts as an interpretation of lives once lived and laid to rest there, reflecting the history and narratives of babies, children and adults. Ramsgate Festival of Sound are pleased to bring this extraordinary installation to Ramsgate, courtesy of MERGE Bankside, in partnership with Tate Modern, Better Bankside, and Bankside Open Spaces Trust. As a Ramsgate resident, Peasgood created this work locally, with the support of local artists and singers, and driftwood from on our local beaches. Requiem for Cross Bones is an act of remembrance and hope; a communal reflection on history, life, loss and love.
