On August 7th 2017, Stuart Fowkes (Cities and Memory) launched 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.
PROTEST & POLITICS – THE ALBUM is Stuart’s selection of 12 tracks to represent the huge variety of pieces create for the project.
Track 3 – ALONE IN THE CROWD, is the one that I composed.
