Part of the following series:

Underline: Art & Music for the Victoria line

Art on the Underground’s first ever commissioned composer, Matt Rogers was invited to create new work inspired by the Victoria line. Rogers’ project  considers the Tube as a site of relocation in time and space, the rich possibilities of chance encounters and the unique ambient characters of the Underground, resulting in an new site-specific series of work to animate the Victoria line, from live performances, to recordings, installations and downloads.

Sunday 3 April 2016 was the first date in a series of sumptuous, one-off performances with players from London Sinfonietta on the Victoria line. From solo players to ensemble pieces, the events were visually inspired by the Victoria line’s unique tile motifs, with costumes designed by Jenny Hayton and graphic works by Fraser Muggeridge studio.

In collaboration with London Sinfonietta
