A collective of inspiral urban soundings artists as individual foxes, and couples, searching for the sounds and life of North and South London listening and tracking their territories for other ‘wildlife’. see event info here 
As cities emptied - hollowed out by lockdown at night - a skulk of urban foxes leaves their comfortable earths to set out on a hunt for food and entertainment. Individual foxes, and couples, searching for the sounds and life of North and South London make journeys towards each other, listening and tracking their territories for rival scavengers and ‘wildlife’. As midnight approaches, the North and South River skulkers will meet in couplings to discuss and dissect their evenings’ charming wandering. Questions of what was heard, what sensed, seen and experienced; of the other walking the city, and of our co-existence with other inhabitants. 
 
Optimal Social Distancing measures are followed in the making of this collective urban fox soundscape and many of the mobile mics will be following parts of the inspirallondon.com trail. Urban foxes leave their home simultaneously at 8pm (GMT) for dusk sounding and will be making their discursive meetings between 10.30-11.30 pm. A skulk of foxes is an inspirallondon.com project for soundcamp 2020 with a collective of mobile mic handlers-foxes including: Jamie Beddard, Will Brook, Richard Couzins, counterproductions, James Eastaway, Rachel Gomme, Calum F Kerr & Miyuki Kasahara, Frog Morris, Alex McEwen, Sarah Sparkes & Ian Thompson, Keith Turpin and Anne Robinson.
