“Heygate” is a composition by Will Montgomery, released by Winds Measure in 2013 as a white-vinyl 12 inch EP. A Side ‘Heygate’ and B Side features a spoken word piece by Robert Curgenven, entitled ‘Looking for narratives on small islands’.
‘Heygate’ is created from sounds sourced by Montgomery in and around the estate collected over a series of months. Facing imminent demolition, the piece aims to capture “an encryption of the acoustic environment” of the estate.
This soudn piece is part of a wider work by Montgommery entitled ‘Sounding the Heygate Estate’, which features a written work of the same name, published in August 2011.
