Captured in a new series, Please Touch, Holba brings to life Hewitt’s quirky pieces by demonstrating how they might be used in real life. Touch any of his sculptures and pre-recorded music or sound bursts from them.
This audio is recorded outside of Hewitt’s studio in spaces that offer the best representation of each artwork. While others might contain music and sound co-composed in community settings such as psychiatric hospitals, charities and schools. For these improvised recorded pieces, Hewitt either works alone or with other musicians, like, for example, the City Of London Sinfonia and the Royal Albert Hall.
