(Talking) Space to Space is an ongoing radio/performance project. Using captured natural radio emissions from celestial objects, Iris reshapes these sounds into an audio composition and flings them back to the stars in a radio broadcast. A poetic gesture, a sensual fiction which takes the past, re-shapes it in real-time and travels with it into the future.
The piece was originally performed on Resonance FM in June 04 and as part of Radio Art Riot during the Frieze Art Fair, October 04. An extract was also featured as part of Radio Day of European Cultures in October 05. An extended version was listed for the PRS New Musci Award in 05. An extract was released on 10″ vinyl by German art label lich-tung in spring 06 and Iris is currently working on a globe-spanning version of this project involving a series of radio telescopes around the world.
A 13 min stereo version of (Talking) Space To Space is available on this 10″ split series out on licht-ung. SOLD OUT.
