Longwave Sebastiane Hegarty

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.

Longwave, is recomposed from field recordings, radio noise and fragments of found sound (including audiocassette letters sent to England from Canada). The piece also includes an audio recording of the solar eclipse in 1999 (recorded on St. Catherine’s Hill, Winchester).
SPECIAL FEATURES: Longwave is highly fragmented and includes: sudden moments of silence/noise; interrupted voice; electrical and radio interference; intermittent noise and glitch.
