Free sound, Plymouth
The sound of slavery is on the Plymouth airwaves from today for a month. Freesound 106.6fm aims to bring all yous out there news and opinions on art, music, freedom and slavery. Caroling Mawdsely from Plymouth Arts Centre might be able to shed a bit of light on it. Take it away Caroline.
‘Freesound originated from a conversation with Paul Howard, exhibiting artist at Plymouth Arts Centre. The soundtrack for his film installation Rush Hour was created from the radio stations in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The exhibition, the film programme and Freesound.fm raise questions about the existence of slavery 200 years after the parliamentary act that abolished the transatlantic slave trade. Freesound reaches out and involves the people of Plymouth in this discussion and offers airspace to and for the creativity and culture of this city.’
Cheers Caroline, now we all know. And now we can tune in.
Eggbuckland Community College have designed programmes, jingles and 30-second soap operas and radio dramas that will be broadcast on the station, with the help of Motiongrafik and Creative Partnerships, Plymouth.
