Third Space

Third Space is a new monthly residency on Resonance Extra. Each month, we invite two artists to take an unplanned journey with a microphone, capturing their cities' unique soundscapes. Each featured artist will then weave these field recordings into a carefully curated mix of music from their locality, producing an intimate window into the sound of a city and its culture from an artist's perspective. 

Third Space with First Light Records is broadcast on Resonance Extra on the third Monday of every month at 2pm. Tune in on the Resonance Extra website, Radioplayer, or DAB digital radio (London, Bristol, Norwich, Brighton, and Cambridge only).

Third Space 002: London / Mexico City

Monday 15th November / 14:00 - 16:00

The first half of this month’s show comes courtesy of London-based field recordist and sound artist, Kate Carr, who paints a vibrant picture of the city’s sonic culture through music and fly-on-the-wall recordings of the lives that populate its boroughs. The sounds of excited Carnival-goers, street performers, and noodle bar customers punctuate an expert selection of tracks from London’s thriving experimental electronic scene. In the second hour, sound artist and researcher Leena Lee guides listeners through the streets of Mexico City. From rich choruses of bird calls and gently swelling ambient cuts, to the raucous techno that soundtracks the beating heart of the city’s nightlife, Lee captures the contrasts and contradictions of modern urban living in one of the most densely populated metropolitan areas in the world.
