ABOUT THE WORK
Sonic City is photo-based a/v documentary that explores the relationships between urban development and music culture. With places and spaces at the core of the project, Sonic City aims to shed light onto music production, consumption, and dissemination across Toronto and beyond.
Philip Skoczkowski is a multidisciplinary researcher/ practitioner whose work revolves around contemporary citizen engagement, culture and development. Motivated by his background in international development and politically charged work, Philip is currently exploring the relationship between space, sound, and the importance of music culture as social capital.

TOMORROW (Saturday 7th May 2016)
I will be in the guest mix hot seat for the ECSTACY GARAGE DISCO show on MEATtransMISSION radio, hosted by JOE ROBERTS, from 4-6pm, playing selections from the WNCL Recordings back catalogue.
The inimitable West Norwood Cassette Library will be joining me from 4-6pm tomorrow on MEATtransMISSION radio. Longtime fan of his work, as well as the label, the West Norwood area, cassettes and libraries so it should be a corker.
