OPEN CALL: Reimagine the sounds of the London Underground

London Underground sound mapWe’re pleased to announced our latest open call for sound artists and musicians for our summer project, The Next Station.

Working with our friends at The London Sound Survey, we’ve created the first ever sound map of the iconic London Underground public transport system – and now we want your help to remix and reimagine it.

The Tube is the world’s oldest underground railway, launching in 1863, and is now one of the most recognisable features of London as a city – and one of the most distinctive soundscapes in the world.

With your help, we’ll create a reimagined sound world beneath the streets of London, and create a new version of the famous London Underground station map – in sound.

Here’s how to take part:

  1. Email us to get involved.
  2. We’ll send you a list of available Underground sounds – let us have your first and second choices, and we’ll allocate you a sound to work on.
  3. The call to get involved with the project closes on Friday 8 July.
  4. Reimagined sound pieces must be submitted by Monday 8 August.

Submission guidelines:

1. Reimagined piece should be WAV or AIFF files, maximum 20 minutes in length.
2. Pieces must contain elements of the original field recording/be based on the original field recording, but otherwise can be a free composition. Some inspiration from previous projects here.
