Commissioned for radiofutura, part of digital arts festival Future Places (2010)
‘Left+Right’ explored ideas of soundwalking, choreography and improvisation to create a realtime site-specific audio performance, in which two performers who simultaneously broadcast audio from overlapping journeys across the city of Belfast, employing the form of interaction found in radio transmission as a source for relational dialogue between performers, place and listener. Each performer, “Left” and “Right,” supplied part of the stereo chain that was broadcast to multiple listeners across the internet. The piece investigated the diverse soundscape of Belfast, as well as the changing distances and relationships between each performer’s unique sonic perspective. The concepts of liminality, psychogeography, ritual and play are interrogated through this adapted metaphor of the stereo image. The resulting audio broadcast was dynamic in nature, shaped by realtime decisions that were transmitted through a mobile and multivocal ecological network.
