Loughborough Records Presents Presence (LIVE)

Venue: Bandstand, Queen’s Park, Loughborough

Loughborough’s musicians have joined Loughborough Records Presents Presence (LRPP) to write and record their music and now they are going to perform it at a live event.

Earlier this year Can Altay created an installation that took the form of a recording studio known as LRPP and local bands were invited to perform and record their songs. Over three weeks, 70 songs were recorded by 30 bands. The recordings of which are available online. The recording studio was a commission created as part of the Radar programme Market Town, influenced by the way in which popular music, produced in specific locations, has created a specific ‘sound’, reaching out to audiences beyond the location in which it originated (e.g. Detroit, Bristol, Manchester and many others). Can Altay is interested in the possibilities music has in creating a wider impact and engendering a positive perception of the place of origin.

This project culminates in a series of live performances taking place in a bespoke staged area in Queen’s Park and the production of a special, limited edition, vinyl record featuring a number of the recorded tracks.

This event is organised as part of Radar’s current project, Market Town, a long-term project comprising commissions and critical debate designed to engage with the regeneration of Loughborough’s high street. The Market Town public events programme is intended to further investigate the themes explored in the main commissions, and to further engage the local community in the debate about the future of Loughborough.
