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.
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 resonancefm.com. 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.
