Ode to a People’s Vote

Join us in the largest political protest in modern British history today (with apparently one million attendees), as we rejoin the People’s Vote march of 23 March 2019 in London.

Here, a bagpipe player performs the EU anthem “Ode to Joy” while fellow protesters join in – following applause at the end, a chorus demanding a people’s vote on Brexit breaks out.

City version:

For the reimagined sound, taking the bagpipes playing the EU anthem “Ode to Joy” as a starting point, we’ve built up a crescendo of loops from that piece, interspersed with commentary from Theresa May’s latest address to the UK in March 2019, in which she held members of parliament to blame for a failure to bring about the UK’s exit from the EU.

This is cut with samples from the People’s Vote march, symbolising the schisms caused in the UK by the Brexit issue.
