Dunn & Young present excerpts from lost cassette recordings found in the vicinity of the enigmatic ‘RAY + JULIE’ sculpture on London Road during the recent excavation of the Odeon Cinema. A continuation of their ‘Ghost Telegrams’ and ‘Arnold Circus’ works, ‘London Road, 1981′ reignites a specific place through characters – two nineteen year olds listening to Roxy Music in the shadow of St Georges Hall in the early 1980s – to remind us of how quickly times change.
A minimal-duration work for headphone listening stations in the quieter parts of St Georges Hall that look along London Road, co-produced with Martin Heslop.
Dunn & Young have collaborated on a series of soundworks including SuperBlock (BBC Radio 3), Artists’ uses of the word revolution (CD), The Zone (AIR/EAR Radio, Santa Fe) and All the lonely people (ResonanceFM). See Alan’s website for more details
