Listen to a 2 hours, 34 minutes and 39 seconds version of ‘It’s a Sin’ by Pet Shop Boys

Wolfgang Tillmans has always been interested in the production of music. As part of his installation in the Tanks, he will present all thirty tracks that make up the multi-layered soundscape of ‘It’s a Sin’ (1987) by Pet Shop Boys. In doing so, a familiar piece of pop music is transformed into an expansive sound installation.

Please note that Pet Shop Boys will not be present and there will be no live performance.

This display involves flashing images and strobe lighting.
