In Episode 1 Carly converses with Bridget Chappell about their current project To (Phase) Cancel the Cops which imagines a future without police. Bridget is the founder of Sound School, and they coordinate the synthesizer program. They perform solo as Hextape and as a producer they have toured Australia, Europe, and South East Asia; they work as a sound engineer, co-organise raves with various collectives and they have a residency at Testing Grounds for their project To (Phase) Cancel the Cops. This conversation encapsulates what this series is about – merging theory and practice, learning from trial and error.
Bridget wrote about their project to (Phase) Cancel the Cops for unMagazine last year. Follow this link to read more about their project: http://unprojects.org.au/magazine/issues/issue-13-1/bridget-chappell/
