Lost Chord


Lost Chord is a social musical work currently being researched. Sets of organ pipes are carried through the landscape, each pipe resonating with its own voice. It is a relational work at both a sonic and human level with the drift of travel, the constraints of landscape, the labour of the task and the collective process of the group all determining the nature of an unrepeatable band of sound. The work exploits the psychoacoustic effect of the drone on the carrier and the observer alike and inevitably, while taking place in the secular world, has magical and religious resonances.

Since 2006 Graeme Miller has visited places around the world where migrants have fallen from aircraft.  As the planes approach airports and lower their wheels, so they fall to the ground. BEHELD captures these charged and neglected sites often to be found in the suburban hinterlands of cities.

In this work glass vessels are charged with 180º images taken at locations where the bodies of stowaways have fallen from aircraft. On lifting these bowls they resonate with the sound of their locations.

This is an ongoing work now shown both in its full form with glass bowls and a more transportable form with the majority of images shown in glass lenses.

The work that began in London with 10 sites has been shown extensively in galleries and festivals internationally, most recently in Festival Belluard Bollwerk, Fribourg, (CH) and at Performing Mobilities, RMIT Gallery, Melbourne.

Miller has continued to document this continuing phemomenon, a small yet acute fragment of the deaths that occur in migration. Many sites remain that have not been photographed or exhibited.

BEHELD was produced by Artsadmin and originally created at Dilston Grove, London with Café Gallery Projects, with financial support from Arts Council England and the Henry Moore Foundation.





Track is an environmental work and moveable participatory installation that throws landscape through 90 degrees and sets it in motion. Face-up and camera-style, the viewer is gently pushed by their individual “grip” on a slow journey along a 150 metre length of dolly track and invited to gaze upwards.

For the participant, the work creates a shift in relationship with its environment.  For the onlooker, that space is transformed by the vanishing tracks and the continuous, hypnotic motion of the viewers and the people pushing them. It has been installed in locations that range from tree canopies to motorway flyovers.

Track was co-produced by Artsamin and Entre Cour et Jardins and originally commissioned by Home live Art and Wandsworth Council Arts Team for The Shimmy.

A chance to embrace a vivid re-orientation, to look up and wonder at our earth-bound clumsiness

Moth Theatre

Moth Theatre


Moth Theatreis a small-scale freestanding plywood theatre fitted with a video feedback system and ultra-violet lighting. Standing in a pool of its own radiance, it is theatre for moths by moths.

Insects are drawn to the miniature cinema where their image is filmed and fed back to the same screen, generating pattern and unwitting choreography. Moth Theatre plays with the nature of spectacle across the species divide. Drawn by the same light and image as the insects, the human observer is able to eavesdrop on this evolving and autonomous performance.

Moth Theatre was commissioned for the Latitude Festival 2010 in Suffolk, UK and was the first winner of the Latitude Contemporary Art Award. It was show also at Serralves em Festa, Porto.





Bassline is a ‘city-specific’ large-scale sound and video installation revealing the transit of a line of individual walkers as they follow a double-bass player carrying their instrument through the city. The images taken by body-worn cameras captured at steady intervals are projected on translucent screens in a linear subterranean space. They reveal the city in time showing both different locations in the same moment as well as showing the same location at different times.

The line of screens is accompanied by a solo bassline and the voices of the walkers who have recorded their passing impressions.  Bassline is a formal exposition of the city as a physical space haunted by and co-composed, moment by moment, by the bodily memory of its diverse inhabitants.

It was installed in Vienna in the U-Bahn in a service tunnel between two stations in Vienna Festwochen, 2004 and later in Car Park 5 of the Barbican Centre in London, 2009

It’s like a ghost train whose carriages are made of the flickering images of lost streets and whose passengers are disembodied voices… wonderfully impressionistic, eerie and moving

Bassline captures the transience of city life and a sense of ghostly, layered history
