The Tube is the world’s oldest underground railway, launching in 1863, and is now one of the most recognisable features of London as a city – and one of the most distinctive soundscapes in the world.
New project The Next Station, a collaboration between Cities & Memory and The London Sound Survey, aims to create a new version of the famous London Underground station map – in sound.
Sound artists are invited to contribute to the project by creating pieces which reimagine and remix every station and stop on the map, incorporating archival field recordings of the Tube.
Applications to take part are open until this Friday, 8 July. The project launches on Monday 15 August. More info here.
