It’s that time of year again, when all the freshers start downing bottles of wine on the night tube, before packing out “back to the 90s” club nights that litter London’s West End. When I think back to my own time in education, it’s fair to say it’s the nights out that have made a lasting impression, rather than the academic knowledge I was supposed to be learning. But there are something’s education has successfully seared into my brain, like photosynthesis or sin, cos and tan. When it comes to geography, I can only really recall one topic. Rivers. From Oxbow lakes to meandering streams, they’re the backbone of all great cities and none are as iconic as the Thames. This weekend, venture into the subterranean Victorian space below the cities lifeline and watch a chamber concert like no other as curator Iain Chambers conducts the sound of the Bridge’s river and road traffic live, using hydrophones in the river and contact microphones on Tower Bridge itself.
