Music for Ice Cream Vans
Nigel writes: "A park in Norwich, a composer, seven borrowed ice cream vans (and a reporter).
Because, remarkably, these vans and their chimes form the orchestra for Mr Jones's new piece, Suburban Counterpoint (Music For Seven Ice Cream Vans).
All seven will tour the suburbs of Norwich this evening and tomorrow, playing the piece in relay. The idea is that you'll hear it wafting across the streets, meandering into your consciousness.
Dan Jones holds a map of where the vans are going while his sound engineer tells ice cream man Halil Topalcik (that's his back on the right) just what he's doing to his van.
It's part of the closing weekend of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, on PM this evening, with a special mix, exclusive for us of the piece.
Favourite ice cream van tune anyone?"
