about

This piece explores sonic transmissions and emissions, radio, morse code, sonar, satellite, blue tooth, and wireless. From our efforts to track and transmit into our solar system using radio, to blue tooth connections across the room, this work examines the ephemeral sonic tools we use and the traces these leave as we attempt to reach each other. It is an ode to the fragility, dynamism and determination encapsulated in the ways we attempt to connect.

Contact is an edited version of a live performance at Radiophrenia Festival in Glasgow on May 15, 2019.
