Keeping Time – Radio Art Zone

July sees the debut broadcast of a new 22-hour long radio work I have been working on over the past 6 months.

Keeping Time was commissioned by Radio Art Zone for Esch 2022.

The piece will air from 14:00 CEST on Sunday 10th July until 12:00 noon on Monday 11th July.

Listen live to the full 100 day broadcast on Radio ARA 87.8FM in the South Luxembourg area or listen online to the stream at Radio ARA or Resonance Extra from the 18th June – 25th September, 2022.

Keeping Time is a meditative radio work that focuses on our perception of the passage of time and how time is measured. The piece combines durational recordings of clock workshops around the UK and beyond with a specially constructed ‘radio clock’ painstakingly created from 3,600 individual percussive sounds – 1 for each second of the hour – plus excerpts from interviews with some of the horologists who generously gave up their time for this project.

You can find more details on the piece here.
