Crónica is very happy to present the new release in the Unlimited Series of editions, “Crossovers”, a compilation documenting a series of encounters that happened in 2011 during the “Active Crossover” project.

“Active Crossover” is a project initiated by Simon Whetham during a residency at the Polymer Factory Culturehouse, Tallinn, Estonia in 2009. During the residency he met and worked with many artists who were all working with sound and music in different and interesting ways, prompting him to exhibit the work he composed alongside work created by those he met and worked with throughout his time in Estonia and Latvia.

Performing at events a number of times during the residency became an integral part of the project, so when Whetham came to exhibit the works in the UK, each exhibition began and ended with a live performance event, drawing on a pool of diverse local artists and musicians. The format for each performance was that artists were organised into pairs, with one artist beginning to play solo, would then be joined by the second for a short collaborative crossover section, and then the first would end their performance, leaving the second to play their own solo piece.

Gathered on this compilation are a number of the crossover sections, where artists who had not met or collaborated before are captured performing together for the first time.

The project was supported financially by the Arts Council England, I Love West Leeds Festival and PRS for Music Foundation. Thanks go to those organisations, plus all at South Hill Park, Bracknell; Wolstenholme Creative Space, Liverpool; Millspace, Armley; Soundfjord, London; Vicki Laurie and family; Nina and Camlo Edge; Hannah Kemp and all of the artists who got involved, both included here and not…

City of Paradox
Published 12 March 2012 by JT


Hallo ,

I am doing a sound walk at the City of Paradox conference held at the University of East London in April.
The sound walk was written in 2008 Ports of Call and was funded by National Heritage, the Royal Docks Trust and the University of East London. For this sound walk I worked with the voices of Dockers who worked in the Royal Docks and people who lived in the area of Silvertown East London. Most of the recordings of the Dockers are from archives in the Museum of London.
The walk will take place in the eve of the 2nd of April in the Docklands
(Excel centre) Those who want to join my please contact jo@jothomas.me or j.m.thomas@uel.ac.uk. I will bring CD players and Audio please confirm attendance.
The Director of the Project was Toby Butler who runs the
MA Heritage Studies: Place, Memory and History
I hope it is nice eve ...
