Tune In Folkestone: Randolph Matthews

Sorry, this event has sold out

Come and hear Folkestone like never before. Our musician-in-residence, Randolph Matthews, has collected sounds from across the town to create an exciting, new musical composition. Join us for the world premiere this autumn.

Over the summer, Randolph took to the streets and landscapes of Folkestone to collect its sounds and tune into the town’s unique frequency that binds us as a community.

In a series of open workshops, walks and field recording sessions, Randolph and a group of local artists including Craig Gell, Sophie Stone, Tell Me About Your Mother, Nina Clark and the Yo Songsters, went out and about in Folkestone to Tune In and collect the noise of the streets and special ambience of its quiet places.

From Radnor Park to The Leas, from Sunny Sands beach to The Warren, they collected 100s of short sound clips of Folkestone.

Randolph also visited schools and invited the people of Folkestone to contribute recordings of their personal soundscapes to the project. The resulting collection of Folkestone sounds has been transformed into a brand-new musical composition by Randolph with accompanying images by film-maker Alex Davies.

For Tune In Folkestone, Randolph will talk about the project and present the world premiere of Tune In Folkestone accompanied by acclaimed musicians Paul Cheneour and Adam Betts.

Come and hear the sound of your town – all welcome!
