Thank You !

I would like to say a huge thank you. 
We did  not expect the hundreds of people who came, stayed, put up tents, cooked in their camper vans with the radio blaring…
Seriously, we were not prepared for everyone. We only hired two portaloos portable toilet facilities. ( Didn’t want to fall foul of Portakabin’s IP Dept. there )


Have you ever seen hundreds of people walking about a forest listening to radios. In pitch blackness. Wearing head torches?




the 24 hours is reached. Actually there are more than 24 hours now as there have been multiple submissions from bands and their side-projects so to be fair I’ll be pruning the doubles. 

There is a chance that everything sent in will be broadcast somewhere on site as there are lots of limited radius transmitters - so you could drift from something on one transmitter into something else on another.  

Thank you ! 

Near Extinction


During THE DARK. OUTSIDE. event Espen J Jörgensen´s new film NEAR
EXTINCTION featuring a score by Rupert Lally will have its premiere.

Lally and Jörgensen´s collaboration has been a purely musical one up
till now, where Espen recorded instruments and sounds and sent it to
Rupert, who recomposed it as well as adding his own recordings.

NEAR EXTINCTION was directed, shot and edited by Jörgensen, which
Lally had to make a musical response to. A challenge when several
minutes are in pitch darkness.

"I can´t make it easy for him," says Jörgensen, "but I think this is
one of  Rupert´s best pieces to date”.

"I have, like with my music, no need to talk about the film. I think
people will either love it or hate it. Everything that provokes
something else than indifference is great for me,” concludes Espen.

Rupert Lally and Espen J Jörgensen also have an unreleased track from
the THIS IS ART album, which will be played during THE DARK. OUTSIDE.
24/7 radio broadcast.

The soundtrack will be available at:

That Google Map should be centred on the Grey Mare’s Tail Bridge which is where you want to go to. 

If you’re heading down for the evening then it should be easy to spot as we will be lighting things up. (we will be switching the lights back off so, clouds permitting, you’ll be able to see the dark skies above)
