Martin Creed, Work no. 371

2004/2023

Martin Creed, Work no. 371, for voices (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) and elevator, is a choral piece for 8 voices – to correspond to the 8-person capacity of the Fruitmarket lift – singing a chromatic scale upwards as the lift rises, and downwards as the lift descends. 

The work was first installed in the Fruitmarket lift in 2010 as part of Creed’s exhibition Down Over Up. It has been re-recorded by Cappella Nova for our new lift following the renovation of the building in 2021.
