This month, the whole show was given over to one piece: requiem:c40 – A Sound Collage by Carl Slater – In Collaboration with Keith Harrison
On a dark night in September 2017 in a forest, in the midlands, in the rain, visual artist Keith Harrison launched a life size car made of clay, down a 10-metre high ramp to its destruction. The car was a replica of the last Rover 75 to roll off the production line at the Longbridge car plant, Birmingham. This month we are marking that event by dedicating the entire show to requiem:c40 – a sound collage made by Carl Slater in collaboration with Keith Harrison. The piece was first broadcast on Joyride FM, a temporary radio station set up in the forest to soundtrack the launch. Featuring fragments from documentary archives, white noise glitch, cartoon physics and terminal flatlines; the sound collage presents a social-historical framework of automotive manufacture and alternative readings of joyriding, dogging and car culture.
Tuesday 3rd October 2017
