This creative sound interpretation is based on Constable’s Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows. It was created to welcome Constable’s masterpiece back to Tate Britain. The painting has been touring the UK for the past five years as part of the Aspire programme.

The sound piece is called Under a Cloud. It was made by a group of young people from Tate Collective Team and The Salisbury Museum’s Youth Collective, who worked in collaboration with Falling Tree (a radio production company).

Through the sounds in this piece, listeners will be transported to Salisbury through historical and modern sounds. Local noises from Salisbury allow listeners to experience the cathedral, the spire, the water, the meadows and the city. While gathering flashes of historical meaning behind this painting.

This sound piece is part of Aspire, a partnership programme touring Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows across the UK. Aspire is supported by Art Fund, and by National Lottery players through the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
