For her commission, Alice Theobald has produced Taking Stock, a music library made up of 21 specially composed instrumental scores.

Taking Stock with Alice Theobald is a ongoing project in which her own musical compositions draw upon long-term research into the commodification and economy of emotions through language, sound and intonation and how they shape human experience, interaction and perception. Whilst also analysing the affective power of film scores, music for television and stock music, Theobald is interested in the ownership of experience, collective empathy and their relationship to repetition and cliché.
