Let’s tun in to a field recording by Bobby Jewell from the Kill The Bill protest in Parliament Square, London on 2 April 2021. Bobby told us the following:
“This recording was taken at the London Day of Action, as part of the National Weekend of Action in protest against the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill being pushed through by the UK Conservative government. The bill seeks to ban peaceful protest in an authoritarian clamp down on basic political freedoms in England and Wales.
“I was drawn to the energy of the crowd noise and rhythmic chanting.
“I decided to incorporate the sounds as both a sonic centre and the bridge-passage of this asynchronous loop-based composition.”
