One Hundred Tiny Glass Brains Waking Up

Listen out for Sarah Tripp’s Radiophrenia commission online or at 87.9fm. First transmission is at 6pm on 14th Nov 2017 with a repeat broadcast at 6pm on 15th Nov.

“One Hundred Glass Brains Waking Up is a fictional conversation between two people who begin as strangers. Without any prior social bonds they discover they are free to make each other up. This is escapist fiction pared back to two people in a room looking for a way out of social stultification.”

Performed by: Brighton Upton Trust
Composed by: Nichola Scrutton

I’m very excited to say we have now filmed Berio’s Sequenza III for Wendy Kirkup’s current moving image project, which has now been titled  film from a score. Above is a digital still from the shoot, big thanks to Wendy for that.

I love this cheery post-filming photo of Wendy and I…
