In November 2015, the Olympic Park’s Aquatic Centre played host to a number of original atmospheric musical performances. ‘Swimming with music’ was a week long series of performances in the Aquatics Centre, Stratford, London. The music students from University of East London worked over several weeks to create original live music works which were then performed while the general public were swimming. Our reporters Owen Layzell, Tom Reece and Mark Loughnane investigate.
Find out what the swimmers and divers thought of the event and how the musicians felt during their performances.
Artists were mentored by professional musicians Shiva Feshareki, Matthias Kispert, Tim Murray-Browne, and Jackie Walduck.
This legacy event was a collaboration between UEL, Sound and Music and Bigga Fish.
