What does peace sound like?

For 24 hours, the words of peace on the main stage at Royal Exchange Theatre will be broadcast non-stop by Resonance FM.

This bold, ground-breaking audio adventure has been developed with the team at Resonance, led by APA award-winning radio producer Michael Umney and Resonance creative director and BASCA award-winning sound artist Ed Baxter.

“We’ve realised long-form broadcasts before,” says Ed, “including the self-explanatory 12 Hours in the Life of  Fox. But 24 Hours of Peace is likely to be the single most intense programme you’ll hear on the radio this decade – like fording a vast river of contemporary testimony and irresistibly being swept away on its currents… although you can simply stay sitting on the bank and just dip your toes in now and then across the day.”

Resonance FM is a trail-blazing 24/7 radio station which broadcasts on 104.4 FM to central London, DAB to Greater London, on-line nationally on Radioplayer, and live streamed to the rest of the world via Realised by a dedicated community of volunteer engineers and programme-makers, Resonance (“the best radio station in the world” – The Village Voice, NYC) – offers over 125 creative broadcast series every week, featuring local and international artists, makers, critics and experts, a diverse range of artistic voices through radio – from first-timers to seasoned broadcasters.’

24 Hours of Peace is going to stretch our listeners’ expectations,” adds Baxter, “and offers an astonishing and gripping live event at a time when we’re increasingly consuming short, pre-packaged, temporally non-specific and fugitive audio via podcasts and listen-again. It’s a step into the unknown and the unexpected for all involved. A real radio event.
