War Damaged Musical Instruments by Turner Prize-winning artist Susan Philipsz was specially commissioned by 14–18 Now, the official cultural programme for the WW1 Centenary commemorations. The work at Tate Britain is a sound installation, which features recordings of British and German instruments which have been damaged by war. The notes recorded are based upon the tones of the military bugle call The Last Post, a tune that sounded at the end of a battle.
