Lee Welch’s work ACCOMPANIED BY A LOUD MONOTONE, 2012 which was purchased by the Hugh Lane Gallery for their collection in 2016 is now on view in gallery 10.

ACCOMPANIED BY A LOUD MONOTONE is modelled on a test card of test pattern. Before 24 hour broadcasting, these were typically broadcast by television stations when the transmitter was active but no programme was being broadcast. The accompanying audio was often a continuous tone, which the artist references in the title. The work was shown as part of Sleepwalkers, a project in which six artists used the Hugh Lane Gallery as a space for research over a two-year period, 2012-2014
