ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL. LONDON
Transistor is a commission by BBC radio’s Saturday Live and is a Southbank Centre production. It can be found on the counterweight of the glass lift in The Royal Festival Hall. Lemn is associate artist at Southbank Centre. For Transistor he identified the counterweight as a place for a Landmark Poem The Counterweight runs up the backbone of the royal festival hall.
The words “transonic choirs” are a feature of the short poem. A year later Martin Creed created singing floor announcements – transonic choirs. I am now associate artist at Southbank centre.
