The madness of crowds

The madness of crowds
29th May 2017 Cities and Memory

It’s derby day in Sofia, Bulgaria, and we can listen to rival chants between two groups of fans from CSKA Sofia and Levski Sofia before their crucial match (final score: 1-1), in Mark Wilden’s recording.

The reimagined version listens to this crowd from a distance, and considers that from that range it’s often hard to tell if a crowd is angry or celebratory, potentially hostile or peaceful.

Political protests from Istanbul, Hamburg, Athens and our home town of Oxford blend with the Bulgarian crowd, blending protest and demonstration with support and sporting partisanship in one sound.
