On Episode 15, I meet sound artist Will Montgomery in the Elephant and Castle shopping centre. We discuss his projects about the shopping centre and the Heygate estate and the notions of representation and translation that often inspire, challenge and contextualise his practice. We also talk about opacity, openness, literature, text-scores and their intertwining with sound and field-recordings.
The episode will be aired on Tuesday 11th of November at 5pm on Resonance 104.4 FM (repeated on Friday Nov. 5th at 2am).
