SPECIAL EVENT SUNDAY 20TH JULY - VENUES TO BE ANNOUNCED.

RADIO CYCLE will conduct the series of live
street performances broadcasting your stories and favourite
sounds as it appears in the streets of London's East
End. Drawing parallels between Marconi's early wireless
experiments and today¹s advanced communication
technologies, RADIO CYCLE will stage interactive broadcasts
and radio building workshops, where participants can
craft material for airwave transmission. Produced by
Kaffe Matthews and collaborators.
MAGNETIC MIGRATION by Zoë Irvine is a project
collecting abandoned and discarded, no longer used sound
tape, such as old cassette ribbon you find on the trees
and street corners, to be recycled into a new sound
work. Collection points for found sounds will be located
at the music desk of libraries in Hackney and Idea Store
in Tower Hamlets.

LINKED is a public artwork, a walk, a piece
of London's history. Conceived by artist and composer
Graeme Miller and commissioned by the Museum of London,
Produced by Artsadmin.
In 1994, artist and composer Graeme Miller was evicted
from his home of ten years. His house, along with 400
other homes, was demolished to make way for the M11
Out of those events, and a century of everyday moments
in East End life, comes Linked, a semi-permanent sound
installation of words and music stretching across three
miles of the landscape, an invisible artwork which fills
the empty space these absent buildings once occupied.
A series of 20 transmitters are concealed along the
3 mile route continually broadcasting these hidden voices.
Equipped with a receiver and headset the audience will
enter this secret world of sound as they wander the
streets discovering an oral history of the area and
a celebration of the life that continues to flow around
