London Wireless Soundscape Project

Listen to the last show> soho end game

This project aims to broadcast simultaneous 'live' soundscapes from various locations around London. This is made possible using laptops to stream audio over the internet using 'Wifi' networking. The 'streamed' audio is then broadcast on Resonance104.4FM in central London.

Using free internet access points around London we will be broadcasting from different locations every fortnight.

Our first show was broadcast from the heart of London with Leicester Square and Covent Garden on 5th October 2003.We have broadcast from the Hackney Road, Paddington Station, Greenwich Naval College, Greek St and a multicast from Picadilly Circus. A recent show featured hydrophones submerged in the River Thames and Camden Lock.

If you want to take part by bringing your local soundscape to the airwaves then do get in contact. We're always looking for new places to broadcast.

The most recent show was part of the “Radio]art riot” on 15th October. The show can be found in our archives and is a special remixed version that includes the whole gamut of possibilities.
