Even more than the iconic phrase ‘Mind the Gap’, what you’ll hear most often on the London Underground is the almost musical cadence of ‘The next station is…’, at almost every stop on every line. The music of this phrase is instantly recognisable if you’ve ever been in London, as are the famous, anonymous voices in which it is spoken.
The launch of The Next Station had some great pickup in national and international media, including this five-minute interview on BBC World Service – listen now.
We’re very happy to launch our latest project The Next Station today. As well as being the first ever sound map of the London Underground, with 55 stations recorded, we’ve created an alternative sound world beneath the streets of the city with the help of 95 artists from around the world.
