Musical Composition


Musician Pete Williams went into the town and recorded sounds of Brierley Hill during a Brierley Hillness workshop.

These ambient sounds included:  market, street, cafe, Merry Hill mall, canal, the water locks and weir; and inside TXMax, KFC and the library. Some examples:

Library Lift

Mall Ambience


Artspace coordinator and musician Ed Cartwright then used a selection of these audio sounds to create a background track for his Brierley Hill-inspired saxophone composition entitled Faggotsnpeas.
