Listen to Me, 2019

I lived in London in 2019. While living and working in busy London, I wondered, when in urban life was there 'quiet time'? My best guess was during the night when most living beings are meant to be resting. I went out one February night, just outside where I was living, in sub-urban Kingston (just on the edge of London) to sonically record the night. To see if I could find some silence. 

 

I have a record of every hour from midnight till 6 AM.

Reflections on our non-stop existence in twenty-first-century capitalism. Technology engineered by capitalism may be leading us to the ends of sleep itself, as suggested by Jonathan Crary in his book 24/7.
