Public transport techno!

lon271A bank holiday weekend on the London Underground, and the famous Notting Hill Carnival is causing delays all over the city with various line closures, so I thought it was an interesting, time-specific recording and a way of documenting the carnival from halfway across London via its impact.

Taking this on was Oxford musician Matt Chapman-Jones, who works under the name After The Thought. He’s constructed a new electronica/techno track by making every single sound from snippets of the original field recording, making music from the sounds of public transport delays!
