#6 Big Head!

(Hillard Park, Ambleside)

The Get Rid! advent calendar returns to Sound Diaries this December with twenty four sounds of 24″ duration from our growing archive of audio documentation of grassroots football.

Expect last-gasp equalisers; feral goal celebrations; baffling explanations of the offside law; erratic grass mowing; overwrought full-backs; the diesel-powered tremolo of the floodlight generator; goalkeepers making it up as they go along; nothing happening at all and a lot of sending it long!

Get up! Get on the spillage!

Visit the Get Rid! archive on RADAR here, take a look at the blog, or get a copy of the book and cassette.


As per this post and in anticipation of the forthcoming Audiograft 2012 festival, during each day in February 2011, a recording created during Audiograft 2011 will be played here as a Sound Diary entry. The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

This recording features the end of Paul Whitty and Stephen Cornford’s performance of “it pays my way and it corrodes my soul” at Modern Art Oxford during Audiograft 2011 and the applause that followed.

That concludes our Audiograft 2011 Sound Diary; look out in mid-May for the Audiograft 2012 Sound Diary, and at the end of February for the entire Audiograft 2011 archive.
