Landfill Audio Report

Friday 11th June 2021

Landfill Audio Report

Landfill Audio Report is a collaborative artistic research project, excavating the significance of a former landfill site on the Thames at East Tilbury which is gradually leaking into the river as the tide erodes the riverbanks. The work consists of a 30 minute audio piece broadcast on Resonance FM, then downloadable from 13th June onwards, and on-site spoken word readings from members of the collective. It constructs a montage of narratives meditating on the site, the nature of landfill, and its impact and implications. Rhythms echo the movement of the tides, sifting and juggling voices and comments, drawing attention to the shifting scales uncovered in the intertidal zone: from micro to macro, from local to global.

The spoken word on-site readings will take place: 

Saturday 12 June 12noon
Meet by Engine Room Café, Coalhouse Fort, East Tilbury, Tilbury RM18 8QD

About the artists
Sensingsite is a practice based research group developing arts-based responses to the political, material, and sensory natures of site, place, and space. It takes critical, experimental, and improvisational approaches to research methodologies, with a particular interest in non-linear and collaborative ways of knowing.
