The beginning of a new chapter.
I have decided to begin a shiny new blog for the summer and final year so will no longer be using this one for recording ideas and thoughts.
I feel like I’ve completely neglected my Tumblr account recently, feels like I have no time to update things.
I had my first visit to the vaults last night since beginning this project. Unfortunately it wasn’t the ghost tour. Went to see Ben Ottewell play at Cabaret Voltaire and as usual he didn’t disappoint, it was incredible.
While I was there though I was trying to imagine the space being used for my exhibit. I’m not sure what the other vaults are like in comparison, the ones in Cab Vol are quite decent in size (2 vaults knocked through). There was a door up the back which leads to the backstage rooms but it looked like various vaults broke off from there.
The sound in the space is really good aswell, I wasn’t sure what the accoustics would be like in a small underground space. Obviously there will be equipment in place to support this with it being a music venue but it was good to find out.
I really wish I could find out more about the space available, there seem to be limited information available and the ghost tour companies have been really unhelpful. I didn’t want to have to make up the map for it but it’s looking more and more likely that that’s what i’m going to have to do.
