Murmuration (Little Wing) is part of the Wall of Sound project, a series of graphite rubbings made from the woodchip wallpaper in Jimi Hendrix’s London home at 23 Brook Street, prior to the building's renovation into a museum. Some of the wallpaper rubbings are resonant of music notation, Little Wing (Murmuration) reflects a more free flowing approach.

Hendrix’s home is next-door to where the composer Handel lived 200 years earlier and it is said that Hendrix saw visions of Handel in the walls of his flat. The wallpaper scores are composed of abstract marks created by graphite rubbings of the woodchip wallpaper on blank manuscript paper. The five sections, akin to a suite of music, were performed as part of the 2015 London Jazz festival at Handel House, as part of the 2016 London Jazz festival at the Southbank Centre and at the opening of the Hendrix House museum. 

Wall of Sound won EMERGENCY 2016.
