Invited artists / sound-makers are asked to make a work for radio, based on the theme ‘Where are we now?

The title is inspired by the David Bowie song of the same name. The songis reflective and nostalgic, a case of man looking back on a life that once was, when the future is uncertain.

As the Covid pandemic has thrown all our lives into flux the question ‘Where are we now?’ seems even more poignant. In these unprecedented times, we have all found time to reflect on the now and more importantly on the ‘what can be’.

Where are we now? is a question? To be interpreted through sound for radio.

Each work will be at least 30 minutes long and can range from sound collage, voice, ambient, avant-garde, field recordings, electro acoustic or a hybrid of different forms.

Episode 1 | July 29
Episode 2 | Aug 5
Episode 3 | Aug 12

The pieces will be a deep listening experience, encouraging listeners to expand their conception of narrative and musicality.
