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.
