Sonic/visual artist Ivan Riches combines oral histories with live improvisation and digital projection to create an immersive new performance. Surroundings reflects on the impact on individuals, families and the wider community of a changing Southwark.
Ivan Riches creates multimedia installations, using visual imagery with soundscapes, often incorporating live music performances. Recent works include Crystal Annual and Talking about Art, where improvised music was combined with interviews with older people and young children. These works were presented at live events at the South London Gallery and the V&A Museum of Childhood in 2017.
