Museum Of The Moment kicks off

FreqOUT!'s flagship summer project 'Museum of The Moment' has just completed is first phase. Masterminded by artist Jennie Savage and contributed to by the community in and around the Westminter section of the Harrow Road (NW9/NW10), the project will act as a showcase for the talents, voices and sounds of the Harrow Road.

For the last month young people from youth clubs based along the Road have been gathering information on ambient sounds and interviewing the local community. The recording phase completed this saturday with a ClashUp! on the Harrow Road in which singers, guitarists, flautists, rappers and DJ's performed along the road as the team recorded the sounds.

The project will complete in September when six radio broadcasts are transmitted by local shops. Passers by will be able to hear the sound by listening on their mobile phone radios or wireless headphones that will available from nearby collection points.

We would like to say thank you to Capgemini, Creative London and London Westside who have generously supported the project, and to the volunteers, young people, technical specialists and other contributers who have made the project happen to date.

If you would like to be informed of, and invited to the final event contact the FreqOUT! Project Manager arobins@cwh.org.uk.
