Featuring the Voices of Alex Jueno and Máiréad Ni Chroinin. For Galway 2020 on the Island of Inis Oirr
This broadcast is about how radio helps during times of isolation. I have been rethinking the human condition in terms of isolation at sea, and how visible and invisible boundaries can be broken via radio waves as an act of resistance and the legacy of radio art across boundaries. We are all kitchen table broadcasters now, online streaming means we have broken free with live streams across the globe for those with technology, power and the internet,However analogue radio is still a mighty force and affordable for many worldwide. My radiophonic poem draws on my own enforced isolation first through Brexit and then in lockdown. In the spirit of transnationalism it sends a broadcast from the phantom but once mapped island of Hy Brasil off the Irish coast, relaying a message of peace, hope and unity across all borders. A new radiophonic work considering how radio helps us with forced isolation and how visible and invisible boundaries can be broken via radio waves as an act of resistance.
