Loftus Media has recently produced audio for two major Barbican exhibitions – delivering one of the Barbican’s most listened to podcasts.
‘Audio For Travelling To or From The World of Charles and Ray Eames’ examines two of the most important designers of the 20th century. In this beautifully crafted piece of audio, Barbican exhibition curator Catherine Ince and assistant curator Lotte Johnson explore the Eames’ most ground-breaking ideas, inventions, and designs – and one of the Eames’ grandchildren, Eames Demetrios, offers an insight into how they lived and worked. Our podcast uses archive audio and music from the couple’s films to bring the Eames story to life, and enhance the exhibition visitors’ experience. You can hear it here.
To complement the Art Gallery exhibition ‘Strange and Familiar: Britain As Revealed by International Photographers’, Loftus created audio to accompany five compelling photographs, each capturing an aspect of the social, cultural or political identity of Britain. We interviewed iconic British photographer and curator Martin Parr, curator Alona Pardo, exhibition assistant Jilke Golbach, Guardian journalist Sean O’Hagan, author Pamela Roberts, and voices from around the UK, in a bid to reveal how others see us. See the five photos and listen to our audio here.
Finally, we are just starting work on ScreenTalks – an exciting new archive film project which will kick off the Barbican’s Year of Film in January 2017.
