Underline: Matt Rogers

Date uploaded: October 6, 2015

Underline is a series of art and music commissions for the Victoria line, of the London Underground. With commissions from three visual artists, an architectural collective and a composer, Underline will draw inspiration from the character of one of the most intensively travelled lines on the network, and the organisations, communities and histories connected by it.

Underline launched with Giles Round’s commission, Design Work Leisure in July 2015.  Liam Gillick will screen a series of new films shot across the Underground network. Contemporary composer Matt Rogers’ new music commission will be performed by members of London Sinfonietta live in stations on the line in spring 2016. In summer 2016, architectural collective Assemble will develop a new public site at Seven Sisters. Closing the Underline series, Brixton-based artist Zineb Sedira will present a new film work and photographic series currently in production.

Sample Set Launching on the 13th of October 2015

Composer Matt Rogers will collaborate with the London Sinfonietta and London Underground staff to create new works to be played live on the Underground, exploring ideas of chance encounter and relocation.

Matt Rogers will release Sample Set, a free set of found sounds recorded on the Victoria line, as the first part on his commission for Underline.
