‘Our collection of reviews of work from ourselves and others. Our experiences are not present they are not with us. these are our emotional reconstructions through sonic conversations fragmented voices, we converse.’

The Absolution of Curiosity
Wednesday 13 April 7:30PM | Repeated Friday 15 April 5PM
‘…curiosity was once a beauty of the unknown but in recent years it becomes clear that there is now no more unknown’ A tautological radio excursion exploring the contemporary site of what is no longer unknown, a place where all that is left to review is that which is already a review.

The Sonic Ritual of Excess
Wednesday 20 April 7:30PM | Repeated Friday 22 April 5PM
From a sonic collage response to Mask 13, to an exhibition delivered to peoples’ homes during lockdown, copycat echoes of a text-in-response, a ritual offering of an artist’s teeth into space, and an encounter of a breathing flower on The Strand. This programme explores and extends the boundaries of the written review.

Writing in Sand
Wednesday 27 April 7:30PM | Repeated Friday 29 April 5PM
A sonic environment is created for this programme whose filmic scope creates a place for sonic meditations on the act of reviewing and the memory of what was seen or heard.
