Aftershow celebration: 28 May 2011 | 7:30-9:30pm
The installation, for 8.1 channels and live video feed, explores the soundscape of the Obby Oss ritual in Padstow (Cornwall) on the 1st of May every year. It aims to celebrate the sonic beauty of the place and its community as well as highlighting the socio-political issues of this highly touristic centre where most locals cannot afford to live there and most of the old village now belongs to second-home owners and is slowly loosing its nature.
