Welcome to While You Wait, our brand new podcast series each of which is a different meditation on the idea of waiting.
On the last Moday of every month a new podcast will be released for you to download for free via the Fuel, the Independent and Time Out websites and Soundcloud. Click here to listen on our website.
Our first podcast is "Waiting... Now" by Paul Clark Co-Artistic Director of Clod Ensemble in collaboration with Bill Brewer, Susan Stebbing Professor of Philosophy at King's College London featuring Chris Allan (Cello)
This is a 10 minute piece of music for cello, banjo and (as the lead instrument) 150 voicemails, intended to be listened to on headphones. It is a reflection on those relatively short moments - at a bus stop or in a waiting room – where we can steal a few minutes to reflect, let our minds wander, make up a tune, work something out. Or we can check our electrical devices.
You can listen to the podcast at a listening station in the foyer of the King’s Cultural Institute in the East Wing of Somerset House in London from 1 February-30 June 2013.
