The South West Camerata acted as a mobile bandstand, traveling around Central Park, Plymouth. The music played was selected through conversations held with the park users; discussions about notions of heroism and macho icons of pop culture.
The music played included:
James Bond: James Bond Theme, Monty Norman
Harry Potter: Hedwig’s Theme, John Williams
John Wayne and Clint Eastwood: Hoedown, Aaron Copland
Captain Jack Sparrow: Pirates of the Caribbean theme, Hans Zimmer
Indiana Jones: The Indiana Jones theme, John Williams
Rocky: Eye of the Tiger, Survivor
Bandstand was commissioned as part of Plymouth City Council and Plymouth College of Art’s Art in Central Park public art and engagement programme.
