Visited Sittingbourne this afternoon as I wanted to see what the High Street was like on a Saturday (as this is the day that we think the installation will be launched). As predicted it was very quiet, in terms of there being very few people around; however, as I walked up the street there was the sound of a rock band rehearsing or possibly sound checking for an evening event. (It was 4pm – a typical time for a sound check). The music was coming from the upstairs of one of the pubs in the town, which although was outside of the area in which I was planning to have my sound installation, the band’s music was very audible. I went into the pub and asked one of the bar staff whether the pub had bands every week and was told that wasn’t the case – it was just that the band upstairs were preparing for a party booking that evening.
