Chiltern and Paddington Street were home to many recording artists in the 1960/70's. This work pays tribute to them and the current community. Viewers are invited to imagine the past and sing along with the musical work.
 
Each colour glass panel is matched with a musical note found on the key- making the work singable. As the sun hits the glass throughout the day coloured reflections shift creating another dimension to the building, making a static work active and constantly changing. 
 
This is a permanent work in Central London. 
Commissioned by O'Shea Ltd, with Galliard Homes and Westminster Council.
