Abstract

As part of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) sponsored renovation of Hoxton Hall – a Grade II* listed Victorian music hall in the East End of London – Hannah Bruce and Company were commissioned to devise a new to run in the newly re‐opened building. The brief was to marry the company’s interest in technology-­enabled promenade performance work with aspects of the ‘heritage interpretation matrix’ that Hoxton Hall developed as a result of their HLF funding. Building on their experience of developing the TlotT app as an integral part of various promenade performance works, Hannah Bruce and Company set about asking a series of research questions that would inform the development of the piece A Collection of Small Choices and the associated mobile app SmallChoices. This seminar will report on the technological and artistic context for SmallChoices, consider the role that sound design and musical composition played as part of an interdisciplinary team, and ask how / if an artist-­led project can contribute insights towards the further development of the Internet of Everything.
