Dead Air

sound work, 3:15

Dead Air is a 3 minute radio work comprised of liminal moments – that is, silences and near silences, breath intakes, stutters, transmission cuts and other ‘non-sounds’ from National Radio. These fleeting gaps and failures are strung out and strung together – simultaneously subverting traditional radio as densely programmed monologue, and allowing the ‘listener’ to become broadcaster, as his local sounds and voices overpower the quiet transmission.
