100 Seconds to Midnight

000 days 00 hours 00 minutes 00 seconds

100 Seconds To Midnight is an experimental series of six soundscapes, created using field recordings and photographs captured at ten-kilometre intervals, during my two-hundred-and-twenty-kilometre journey cycling around London.

Following The Capital Ring, one of Transport for London’s walking and cycling routes, I pass through suburban streets, shopping centres, ancient woodland, and historic landfill sites, and reflect upon author, Iain Sinclair’s, 2002 observation of the city as “mall-virus, landscape consumerism, retail landfill”, in the context of current environmental tipping points.

You are invited to listen and consider the relationships between consumer culture and environmental change.

A new soundscape will be released online each Saturday, at precisely, 100 seconds to midnight, from the 18th September to 24th October 2021. Please refresh the page to see the latest release and use headphones or speakers to listen.

Commissioned for the Central Saint Martins and  MullenLowe Group NOVA X exhibition.
