Landfill Audio Report, by Sensingsite. Landfill Audio Report is a collaborative project by Sensingsite, presented as part of Estuary 2021. It looks into a former landfill site on the Thames, at East Tilbury, which is gradually leaking into the river as the tide erodes the riverbanks. The programme 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. A live event will take place at East Tilbury on 12 June at 12 noon. See Estuaryfestival.com for more information. [Repeated Tuesday 10pm.]
