For January’s Itinerant Mind we wrap up our year long project “The Grid” with a soundscape totally comprised of recordings related to London created by Annie. This brings to a close the work we embarked upon for Project Anywhere.
This recording is taken from a year long exploration into the underbelly of a city. The intention was to investigate intriguing aspects of the city through journeys interspersed with chat. This focuses on the minutia and moments that happen whilst on the move including falling in love with strangers, tripping over unseen crisp packets, being shadowed by your own shadow, and popping into new venues. The voices heard are from Craig Clayton, Chila Kumari Burman, Mike Summer and Josie Monro and the general background London voices. The people interviewed represent the fabric of the city interwoven into the day to day adventure that makes up London.

Annie Morrad and Ian McArthur live at opposite ends of the planet. They compose and play collaborative sound work and live performances through the use of digital software Mixlr and Skype. For live events McArthur broadcasts electronic sounds, field recordings and live mixing. Morrad plays live improvised alto and tenor saxophone against these. For their recorded sound work the starting points vary from being concept driven to "I've got this idea…."
