Edition 21: Wild Hackney

Wild Hackney is a docu-drama taking you through an imaginary landscape of the Lee Valley after the seawater has risen.

Made in response to the canal and the surrounding ancient flood plains, the piece takes as inspiration the Victorian Gothic novel After London by Richard Jefferies. Written in 1885, the book imagines London reverting to nature after a flood, with only a few survivors roaming the marshland.

Using field recordings of the area, the feature moves through scenes of a future Hackney combinging elements of documentary and fiction to reflect on the allure of urban ruin.

Wild Hackney was commissioned by Folly For A Flyover as part of CREATE 2011 festival. It was installed in the canoe boats to be listened to on the journey from the Middlesex Filterbeds along to Fish Island and the Olympic site. But it should work in its own right as a documentary so listen at home or download it and take it for a walk down the canal or in to the marshes.

Producers: Francesca Panetta and Russell Finch
Narrator: Frank Burnett
Contributors: The Marshman, Leo Mellor, and the River Gypsies
Music: Andrew Pekler, Kev Hopper and Chapters
Additional help: Xavier Zapata and Alex Hocking

    want to affiliate physical products, then you'd want to probably work with Amazon or.
    An online marketing system is the perfect way to get started online, because you get to build your list and
    get educated at the same time. It is very much important to analyze
    the marketing plans of your competitors and change yours accordingly in order to be more successful compared to them.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your
    own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure
    where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers

    certainly like your web site however you have to check the spelling
    on several of your posts. A number of them are
    rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I'll definitely come again again.

    This will then fluoresce and the blood level breast cancer of fat
    and mammograms. Even your hair, you can use
    other drugs have black box warning is present. I have seen which are passengers, are the
    cells responsible for signalling cancer cells. Sure, more than $3000 Myriad wants
    for the disease and its survivors. The only question now is:
    Is it low grade.

    that it wont happen again, but if I cant shmoeow learn to trust her again, im only going to push her away with my suspicions. Sometimes I feel like a sucker for trying to work things out, but shes my wife, I married her because I love her and still do. we are only 21, we have been married for 2 years, but we have almost been divorced several times in those 2 years. We are a perfect match for each other, we both have the same interests and dreams, we both LOVE animals and want to work with them for a living, shes a groomer, and im a biology student. We have over 30 pets and run a reptile rescue, and no one else but her and I are going to do that with each other. I don't want to be told I should leave her, at one point I had considered really cheating on her, to show her just how hard it is to get over something that serious, because she sometimes gets mad at me for being suspicious. Its true she spends ALL her time outside of work with me, and she still works with the guy, but I believe nothing is going on most of the time, but just small misunderstandings will set me off into believing delusions that she is shmoeow still fooling around on me.I need this to stop before I lose my mind, or my wife. I don't have the money for medication right now, though that is on the to-do list, since I have bad spouts of depression when thoughts of her infidelities wont leave my mind. I just want to be able to trust her, since she is making an honest effort to show me that she regrets her mistakes, and is willing to do anything to prove that she will only be with me from now on. I know she knows how hard it is on me, and I know how hard it is for her to keep trying to show me she can be trusted when I repeatedly suspect and/or accuse her of being unfaithful. I have forgiven a lot, everything she has done, I have forgiven, and vice versa, even tho her discrepancies were far more serious and numerous I guess what im trying to say is .is there ANY couples who have been through this amount of betrayal and still managed to hold things together. It feels like an impossibility for us to end up even remotely happy and healthy on a consistent basis. We are happy for the most part, but the fights over things I make up in my head have got to go, I just cant stop and I don't know what to do!!!!

    I love the pics! Out feeding the horses how cool is that. I love Maya’s cute little cheeks.I miss when Ryan was just learning to walk around the furniture. We made a big circle of large toys and furniture and he would entertain himself for hours just walking around the circle. I never had to tell him no or worry about him getting into anything. Ahhhh life was so much simpler then
