Bellevue and Longwave formed the audio components of the installation Audrey Please Knock (2000): Bellevue entered the installation through two air vents in the walls of an empty room; Longwave entered through a number of radios in the space outside this room.
Within the installation the pieces were played as simultaneous and continuous loops: the loops, being of unequal length, generated a continually evolving soundscape.
Bellevue, is recomposed from recordings of my mother telling stories of her nights out to Bellevue, Manchester, as a teenager. Her voice is accompanied by a covert recording of her getting ready to go out sixty-two years later, at the age of 80.
SPECIAL FEATURES: Longwave is highly fragmented and includes: sudden moments of silence/noise; interrupted voice; electrical and radio interference; intermittent noise and glitch.
