Raviv Ganchrow: Shipping Forecast - Thurs 11 Dec, 1.10pm - 2.10pm

Shipping Forecast is a free concert by Raviv Ganchrow, organised by Recomposing the City, at the Sonic Arts Research Centre on Thursday 11th December, 1.10pm - 2.10pm.

Shipping Forecast explores the complex relations between territory and transmission in BBC Radio 4ÔÇÖs shipping bulletin. Coordinated recordings following the long-wave journeying of a signal from inside a studio at Broadcasting House; to the transmitter at Droitwich; to a shipat sea; to a transistor radio several hundred kilometres away; reveal audible aspects of broadcasting. The piece examines attractions between language, geography, radiation and precipitation where transduced speech addresses, defines as well as physically occupies dimensions of terrestrial space.
