news from elsewhere

In the wide-awake hours after the nightclubs closed we would gather to show our super-8 films and recite redacted newspaper tracts. With an almost religious fervour, Somnambulist Internationale documented a body of work, our very own psychogeographic time capsule. We sat in the dark & watched a flickering projector. Then it was the turn of what we had created to sit in the dark for the next 30 years.

Radio On - An 8 x part radio series of 15 minute episodes by the Somnambulist Internationale. In 2022 a new work was begun. A mini-series of sound-collages called Radio On. Dialogue is taken from Goat Island, an extensive DIY collage book, alongside film clips, favoured music & documentary archive material. Radio On will receive its world premiere on Barcelona's Tesla FM, Autumn 2022.
