Monthly Future Machine Weather Jams
The most recent Future Machine Weather Jam was on Friday 17th February.
We will be hosting monthly ‘weather jams’ at the commons. This will include talks about the ‘When the Future Comes’ project, an opportunity to meet Future Machine and joining a live music jam, playing the music of the weather (and the sounds of the birds and the live weather of the park) with Future Machine, Rachel Jacobs, Esi Eshun, Alexandre Yemaoua Dayo and David Kemp.
What Has Already Happened…
The first weather jam took place on Friday 20th January. We started small with just 12 people but had an amazing musical journey with Future Machine and a very cold frosty still night in the park. We played indoors in the warm, whilst Future Machine played the sounds of the weather outside (the weather station was set up outside the back door) and played messages from the past. When we went outside to feel the weather the sky was clear and we could see as many stars as London light pollution let us.
