EBU Tuesday: Mark Vernon
25. October 2016 20:00Radio Revolten Club
Scotland based radio artist and Radiophrenia head honcho Mark Vernon brings his mix of idiosyncratic documentary and live electronics to the Radio Revolten Klub stage.
His new project named Dead Air Spaces. This radio work explores one of the most basic but vital of our bodily functions – breathing. It includes interviews with diving instructors, a singer, an organist and a yoga teacher and recordings of breathing exercises, snoring, pneumatic tube systems, purring cats, suction units and scuba-divers along with mechanical processes analogous to the human respiratory system such as church organs, bellows and hospital ventilators. The piece also incorporates the use of bi-nasal microphones, a balloon repurposed as an artificial lung and a variety of pipes, tubes, whistles and other apparatus played live.
A ‘dead air space’ in diving terminology, refers to air that doesn’t play a part in the gas exchange with the lungs; air left over in the snorkel, regulator or even the throat containing greater levels of carbon dioxide.
