SHADE-HAUNTED SPACE (excerpt)

November 2018

A pirate radio performance with microphone feedback and the poem "L'éspace aux ombres" ("Shade-haunted space) by Henri Michaux. The poem deals with the emptiness of space and presents a terrible noise echoing into infinity -- the noise of the imprisoned psyche. This performance is a response to consumerist space, presenting a feedback loop wherein the consumer can begin to hear themselves, surrounded by noise.

he transmission is broadcast on 4 handheld radios by 4 performers who modulate the feedback by moving towards and away from the microphones.

May Colvin (Roud 21, Child 4) is a traditional Appalachian/English/Celtic song that tells the story of a young woman who is kidnapped by a knight. He transports her to the ocean where he reveals that he intends to drown her, as he drowned several women who came before her. The heroine outwits him and uses her cunning and strength to drown him in the ocean.
