RESIDENT FREQUENCIES FOR 24 RADIO LOCAL
COMMISSIONED BY HUNT & DARTON
CAMBRIDGE JUNCTION/CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL
A two part series giving voice to the neighbourhood around Cambridge Junction - Cambridge Leisure and played as part of Hunt & Darton's hyperlocal live radio performance: 24H Radio Local broadcast live on local community station Cambridge 105.
Cambridge City Council and Cambridge Junction wanted to better understand the community and neighbourhood in this newly regenerated area around the venue.
Through a collection of stories, experiences, commentary and history told by the people who live and work there, in their words.
Lucia Scazzocchio was 1 of 3 sound artists (alongside Anna Brownsted and Richard DeDomenici) commissioned to live in site for a week and create one hour of audio in episodes.
The result was an investigative exploration of how to find the heart of a community where on the surface it doesn't exist, one conversation led to another, the result was'Resident Frequencies'.
Each episode is interwoven with field recordings, taking the listener on an audio journey through the area, listening to residents and business owners along the way. Each episode explores two very distinct areas around Cambridge Leisure, although only 500 yards apart ‘The Marque Building’ and the intersection of Hills road and Cherry Hinton Road where it sits, are two very different worlds that rarely collide.
