An evening celebrating the life and work of field recordist Ian Rawes, founder of The London Sound Survey, who died in 2021. The evening will feature performances and talks from musicians, writers and friends who knew Ian and his work, alongside the launch of a new album of his field recordings: From Dusk Till Dawn.
Improvisers Elaine Mitchener and Steve Beresford will perform a set based on the forgotten sound-words in Ian’s 2016 book, Honk, Conk & Squacket.
Poet Kayo Chingonyi and sound artist Iain Chambers will respond to the recordings Ian made across East Anglia in 2021 for From Dusk Till Dawn.
Tape manipulator extraordinaire, Howlround, will collage a new set from classic London Sound Survey recordings. Postcards From The Volcano (Helen Frosi & Stephan Barrett) will perform a work inspired by a field recording trip made with Ian in West London.
Photographer Chris Low will recall Ian’s time as a fanzine editor and organiser in the UKs early 80s anarcho-punk scene.
All proceeds from the night will go to The Brain Tumour Charity.
