London’s tempo is 122.86 beats per minute. David Byrne: Image by Tom Oldham

I brought along some field recording gear to use while I was staying in Artangel’s lovely pod/room/boat—Room For London. I went out during the day and recorded sounds that I thought might be useful and evocative. It turned out that most of the sounds—even the church organ in Southwark Cathedral—seemed to converge around a common rhythm. It’s a bit too good to be true—that every large city should have it’s own rhythm, but here it is. I let the sounds dictate the groove, the tempo, and then I simply played along.

Here are where the sounds come from:

Strawberry seller: Borough Market
Train: Southwark
Woman Evangelist: Spitalfields Market
Organ: Southwark Cathedral
Jackhammer: near Waterloo
Footsteps: mine, embankment
Thames waves: near Surrey water

The videos are from all over. I took lots of photos around town while walking about, but I felt that moving images complemented London’s groove a little better.
