In the Walls

2015

Composed of genuine vintage vinyl records, arranged at varying angles to form a sound wave, ‘In the Walls’ celebrates Yalding House’s innate connection to music.

The sound wave represents Radio 1 Breakfast show DJ Nick Grimshaw’s farewell message, ‘Bye, Yalding House’, posted on Twitter just before the radio team left the building for the last time in December 2012. After more than a decade of housing The BBC’s Central Music Library and giving live broadcasts from the basement, the artwork is a reminder of Yalding House’s musical history. The pieces serves as a symbol of the sound continuing to emanate from the walls; a musical accompaniment for visitors as they pass through the corridor.
