"Someone living on a canal boat on temporary moorings must move their
boat every two weeks. This feature captures the journey of Gus who is
moving his boat on a Sunday afternoon in Autumn from the Camden Eco
moorings to bustling Hoxton. During this recording, you can hear
binaurally captured sound of towpath life, moorhens nesting on the
banks and the movement through the 800-metre-long Islington Tunnel. You
also hear Gus manoeuvring through the city road lock.
The piece ends with Gus’ new neighbour reading a traditional canal song
called ‘The First Cargo,’ compiled in Folk Tales from the Canal Side by
Ian Douglas."

Available till Boxing Day. Headphones recommended.
