Well now, hold on

madeinroath in collaboration with Freya Dooley and Sam Hasler, present a 24 hour broadcast event from sunset to sunset during this year’s summer solstice. From 9:30pm on 19th June until 9:30pm on 20th June we will be streaming through Twitch.

Using the first 24 words (one word for each hour) of Frank O’Hara’s Five Poems as our lengthy and meandering title, we’ll be compiling a selection of soundscapes, stories, broadcasts, music, readings and conversations to mark the longest night of the year. Each line from the poem will act as a loose theme for each segment, connecting an eclectic mix of sounds and voices. The broadcast will feature new soundwork by Ashley Holmes, Fern Thomas, Jill McKnight, Malachy Harvey, Lauren Clifford- Keane, Nicola Singh, Rhiannon Lowe, and Tom Cardew. Contributions from more artists to be announced.

We’ll publish a running schedule soon. Visit the Made in Roath website or keep an eye on our social media accounts for more information nearer the broadcast date.
