Podcasts While You Wait
Posted on 28/01/2013
A new series of podcasts launched today will explore the concept of waiting, with one of four ‘listening stations' - specially designed stations where people can listen to the podcasts - to be based at King’s.
Each podcast is a different meditation on the idea of waiting and they will be released on the last Monday of every month. Featuring a range of artists and academics, the initiative, While You Wait, is presented by King’s Cultural Institute, progressive theatre producers, Fuel, and Roundhouse.
The listening stations, designed by artist Barnaby Stone, will tour the UK throughout the year. King’s will have a listening station in the Entrance Hall at the Strand Campus, opposite the Great Hall, for three months. It will then move to other King’s campuses throughout 2013.
Deborah Bull, Executive Director of King’s Cultural Institute, said: ‘I am delighted that King's Cultural Institute is hosting the launch of Fuel's eclectic and imaginative 2013 Spring Season. We are developing a close working relationship with Fuel this year, including this, our first joint project, While You Wait. Further projects are in development and I very much look forward to working with Fuel and their many inspiring artistic collaborators throughout the year.’
The first podcast, Waiting...Now, which features Professor Bill Brewer from the Department of Philosophy and composer Paul Clark, is released today. It explores day-to-day waiting and how the use of electronic devices has radically changed how we fill gaps of time.
