Slater, C and Harrison, K (2017) requiem:c40.

Item Type: Audio
Creators: Slater, C and Harrison, K
Abstract: On a dark night in September 2017 in a forest, in the midlands, in the rain, visual artist Keith Harrison launched a life size car made of clay, down a 10-metre high ramp to its destruction. The car was a replica of the last Rover 75 to roll off the production line at the Longbridge car plant, Birmingham. 'requiem:c40' – a sound collage made by Carl Slater in collaboration with Keith Harrison - was first broadcast on Joyride FM, a temporary radio station set up in the forest to soundtrack the launch. Featuring fragments from documentary archives, white noise glitch, cartoon physics and terminal flatlines; the sound collage presents a social-historical framework of automotive manufacture and alternative readings of joyriding, dogging and car culture.
