Paul Rooney - McKenzie

Wed 19 - Sat 22 May | Part of Memories Are Made Of This: Sound and Music at Liverpool Sound City

½

June

McKenzie is a new sound work inspired by a local Liverpool legend about William McKenzie, a gambler who is said to have made a pact with the devil to ensure a winning hand in a poker game. Worried that the devil would claim him if he was buried underground, he left instructions that he was not to be buried, but instead encased in a pyramid, sat upright at a card table, with a winning hand of cards. This tomb still stands in a derelict graveyard on Rodney Street.
