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.


transmissions

In 2022 a new work was begun. Radio On ~ an 8 part series of 15 min sound-collage episodes. Dialogue is taken from Goat Island (an extensive DIY collage book) alongside favoured music, film & television clips, and documentary archive material. Radio On will be broadcast first on Tesla FM (Barcelona) the series runs throughout their Autumn schedule. Then Radio On starts another run on Resonance FM (London) with episode transmissions on Mondays & Wednesdays from October. To receive a full playlist, broadcast schedule & program guide (58 page illustrated pdf) simply click the Radio On logo below to join our mailing list and we will send you one.
