New sounds for Shoreditch
Remember the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’? The bit that goes: ‘”When will you pay me?” say the bells of Old Bailey’ and the reply ‘”When I am rich,” say the bells of Shoreditch’ ?
Benjamin Till is creating a new TV film that will weave all the old bells of the rhyme together (Shoreditch and others), using local people and his own musical composition.
