The Harmonic Eclipse allows residents of Hackney Wick to come together to experience amplification of sound through two activities: radio astronomy and a brass band. The project is based on the outskirts of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and is run by volunteers that hold performances to combine brass music with astronomy in an offer of civic interchange. The time of day defines a schedule for each activity, and at 5:10pm every day, both activities combine to co-ordinate a choreographical experience.
