Verity Sharp digs deep to uncover the sounds of the underground. Prepare to do some deep listening and tap into the world beneath our feet as Late Junction goes subterranean.
With our sonic archaeologist hard-hats on we delve into the ambient reverb of an underground water cistern with Pauline Oliveros and her Deep Listening Band, as well as traditional coal mining songs from the northern shore of Japan’s Kyushu Island and the British industrial revolution. Experience the sounds of tree roots growing underwater as recorded by sound artist Patrick Farmer and some roots reggae from dub pioneer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Plus immersive sounds from the artist Sandra Crisp, whose work explores the sites of ancient underground rivers beneath London.
Produced by Katie Callin.
