C0034-B: The UPO's Chant

Video documentation (10:25 min)

Statement of facts:

For a long time, I thought that all UPOs were mute. But last spring C0034: The Gargantuan Shoe taught me to never assume anything about them.

For this reason, I remained calm when Sybil sent me that worried voice message about a suspect howling orange object in South London.

During these summer months, I learnt to be patient, listen more and trust the unknown. To act rather than talk. Therefore, I visited the location that Sybil indicated as soon as possible.

When I reached the address, I found a pub. I found expensive food, I found some funky-looking people. Nothing new in that, we are in London after all. 

But I definitely couldn’t find any suspect orange object. Unusual. My boss is always so precise. I might have typed the wrong address or I might be slowly losing my investigative skills.

Action plan:

Accompanied by TLSB colleagues and musical talents Johnston Sheard and Zara Toppin I am planning to visit the mysterious location again on 27/08/2022, to attempt to solve this challenging conundrum through a sonic conversation with the aforementioned howling object.
