Kode9 Tate Modern

Kode9 has provided the sound design for a new art installation at Tate Modern.

The Hyperdub boss made the announcement via Twitter. In a tweet he revealed that he’s installed 40,000 watts of sub-bass for a new piece at the London art gallery by Cuban activist Tania Bruguera.

Currently named 10,142,942, the title of the installation refers to “the number of people who migrated from one country to another last year added to the current number of migrant deaths recorded since the beginning of the project.” As the number escalates, the title of the piece is updated accordingly. Furthermore, the project will exhale a tear-inducing gas and feature a heat sensitive floor that reveals an image.

Recently, Kode9 teamed up with Burial for a 30-minute mix on BBC Radio 6, featuring SOPHIE, Jlin and DJ Lag. Last week, the two released the last ever instalment of the FabricLive mix series.

Bruguera’s installation will run from 2 October to 24 February 2019. Head to Tate’s website for more information.
