Listen: Beatrice Gibson's soundtrack to The Tiger's Mind

October 2012

Stream the entire soundtrack to artist Beatrice Gibson's new film inspired by the compositional techniques of Cornelius Cardew. Gibson is featured in an article by Julian Cowley in The Wire 345.

For The Tiger's Mind Gibson used radical British composer Cornelius Cardew's 1967 score of the same name. Developing the composition's character-based narrative and improvisatory themes, Gibson collaborated with the artists Alex Waterman, Jesse Ash, John Tilbury, Celine Condorelli and Will Holder over a year, asking each of them to work on its different components (soundtrack, set, special effects, music and text).

The resulting film will be screened at London's Showroom Gallery 14 November–12 January, 2013.
