Today, August 7th 2017, Stuart Fowkes (Cities and Memory) launches his latest project:
Protest and Politics is the first global mapping of the sounds of protest, demonstration and political activism.
Sourcing field recordings from his own archive as well as from dozens of field recordists around the world, he assembled a database of protest sounds over summer 2017, and opened this up to artists and musicians to recompose and reimagine, bringing to bear their own experiences and memories onto these sounds.
You can explore the documentary field recordings of protests, spend time in the alternative sound world created by their reimagined counterparts, or flip freely between the two as you choose.
Here’s where you can find my contribution to the project:
