In April 1981, the streets of Brixton became the heart of an Uprising. 40 years later, these streets have much to tell us, with voices that still need to be heard. ON THESE STREETS is a free, interactive audio experience by non zero one through the streets of Brixton that invites you to witness, interact, and respond to the voices, stories, and legacy of the Uprising.
Writer Somalia Nonyé Seaton and sound artist XANA weave fiction with verbatim testimony, all set within an immersive audio world of sound clash culture with the dutch pot pressure of dub music boiling over into the streets.
As Brixton changes, the forces behind the 1981 Uprising grow louder for a legacy that must be heard.
ON THESE STREETS takes place on the streets of Brixton. It’s a free, online audio experience that you stream directly from your phone or device (iPhone, Android, tablet, notepad, Chromebook etc).We expect it to take around an hour to complete.
Over the course of an hour you will journey to 6 different locations in Brixton and experience a story interwoven with words from verbatim testimony of the Brixton Uprising.
At points you will be asked direct questions and respond in your own unique ways.
The audio journey is designed as a solo experience, but you can go with friends and press start together. We recommend that you use headphones to experience ON THESE STREETS to its full potential.
