Radiophrenia/Sarah Tripp

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

Stories of Easterhouse

As part of Made in Easterhouse at Platform Glasgow, I worked on the final stages of Stories of Easterhouse with the Creative Collective and Platform Associate Artist Katy Dye.

I recorded the stories, generated atmospheric backdrops through a creative sound workshop and composed the audio pieces for the final installation.

The map/sound installation is running through October/November 2016.

Radiophrenia is currently broadcasting 24 Stops. It is very exciting to hear the chimes as they were intended when originally created by Sarah Tripp. Furthermore,  Radiophrenia 2016 festival is a perfect setting to listen to them, every hour on the hour for 24 hours amongst such a wealth of radio and sound art…

Following several months working with NERC’s six recovery cafes we are delighted to be presenting Good Days Bad Days sound installation at Platform Glasgow on 27th March.

Here’s a short excerpt LISTEN

This installation event brings to a close a research collaboration with Martin O’Connor that will feed into his Mark of the Beast poetry performance project at a future time.

Mark of the Beast - Martin O\'Connor

I’m excited to be collaborating with Martin O’Connor to develop his latest poetry performance project Mark of the Beast – a work inspired by Glasgow and its relationship with alcohol and addiction.

From November 2015 – March 2016 we are working with participants from six recovery cafes in the north east of Glasgow (NERC – North East Recovery Community) to develop the work, which will be crafted into a sound installation at Platform at the end of March 2016.
