Join us next week on Mixcloud Live for an evening of protest music in response to sound archives from the North West, created as part of Demo Tapes.

Demo Tapes is a music-making project hosted by Archives+ and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund which brings together newly-digitised sound archives and music groups across the North West to create new tracks around the theme of protest.

Musicians Pops Roberts and Phillip Howley have been leading workshops with young people at More Music (Morecambe), Collective Encounters (Liverpool) and Brighter Sound (Manchester) across May and June 2021. During this time they’ve listened to newly-digitised sound archives relating to protest and politics and have created new music in response to them.

These new tracks will be added to the archive and will be performed at a free live-streamed gig on Reform Radio’s Mixcloud Live from Manchester Central Library on Tuesday 13 July 6-8pm. See you there!
