Kaffe Matthews calls out for cyclists

Sound artist calls out for the help of cyclists to power her forthcoming outdoor installation in Dalston, London...

Musician and sound artist Kaffe Matthews is calling out for volunteers to come and help power her new outdoor installation, in clean air we fly in London. The 8 channel sound work is the result of Matthews' collaboration with 40 children from the local Shacklewell and Colvestone primary schools investigating traffic pollution and public transport in the city, recordings of which the artist then translated into a composition. Willing cyclists are invited to participate by travelling to London Gillett Square on 6 December between 12pm-9pm. The work will then continue within the nearby Vortex Jazz Club until 11 December.
