Last night I talked with Rafe in Sao Paulo, Brazil about the part he will play in the 24 hour party.


He spent 2 periods of time with us in 2015 and 2016, finding out about community music, performing and teaching and learning beatbox skills. He will be joined by long time collaborator Eric from Hong Kong who worked with us on the Long Walk in 2008 and then spent 9 months on a Clore Fellowship at More Music. The third international partner in the 4am slot will be Moritz from Cologne as we try to make music across the time zones.

Read below to get a feel for the hour by hour countdown!

As we move indoors a mellower tone. Loads of people making a singular drone. A high wire, world record attempt. Come and join us upstairs at The Apothecary
