Members of The National, Slowdive, Doves and more to take part in project in Bristol

Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard are currently preparing their ‘Requiem For 114 Radios’ and have recently confirmed a number of new collabotators to take part in the project to add to an already packed list of names.

Jarvis Cocker, The National’s Matt Berninger, Efterklang’s Casper Clausen and Doves’ Jimi Goodwin have all been newly confirmed to take part joining the likes of Slowdive’s Rachel Goswell, Mystery Jets’ Blaine Harrison, HTRK’s Jonnine Standish, Cat’s Eyes’ Rachel Zeffira and more.

The project draws on an ‘abandoned’ archive of 114 FM radios, some of which are inhabited by the voices of the above vocalists and others the frequencies between radio stations as part of a performance at Bristol’s Colston Hall on May 13. You can find out more details on the project here.
