Artist, writer and psychogeographer Laura Oldfield Ford and musician, sound engineer and producer Jack Latham will join us at the next Stadtklang music evening at the Arcola Theatre Bar in Dalston on Sunday 7 May.

They will present and discuss new sound work, commissioned by the Showroom Gallery, using field recordings taken during experimental, critically-engaged walks or 'dérives' in Edgware Road.
