Drawing on academic research from across the Social Sciences at Loughborough, Making it up: this moment of June investigates forms and relations of listening that (re)produce and are (re)produced by personal and public places, focusing on the interactions that might support people to perform music but are not in themselves musical.

Rebecca has brought together an ensemble of Loughborough musicians to reflect on these ideas and together they will trace boundaries of music, place and registers of listening, exploring how these might be brought within a performance. A public recording session will share the results, which will then re-sound in a playback programme on our Loughborough campus and in the town over the summer period.

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Department of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.

Disturbing Space is a radio station and sound system on a custom bicycle which answers to no body, place or time. The bicycle, "Soon Reach" was developed by sound artist Xana in response to a series of workshops in Loughborough, Leicester and London around the themes of connecting through sound, displaced geographies and building free spaces to manifest joy.

Disturbing Space reflects on the power of pirate radio, textile printing and songs about movement, lullabies, rhymes and tales which elevate Black voices; creating a journey that is chosen by the traveller and fuelled by music.

"Soon Reach" will be pedalled through Loughborough and passers by are invited to meet with the station and contribute to the broadcast. Exact location details will be added here closer to the date. 

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Deparment of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.
