Overheard (Performance Part 2)

Overheard (Performance Part 2)

A performance, a radio show, an installation, an endurance test. A game of chance. Constantly broadcasting live, actor Tam Dean Burn will leave Tramway at the start of INSTAL and walk away from it, in an ever increasing spiral, for a day. Then he’ll walk back.

Who: The worlds leading radio art station. “A radio station like no other. A radio station that makes public those artworks that have no place in traditional broadcasting. A radio station that is an archive of the new, the undiscovered, the forgotten, the impossible…”5

What: A performance, a radio show, an installation, an endurance test. A game of chance. Constantly broadcasting live, actor Tam Dean Burn will leave Tramway at the start of INSTAL and walk away from it, in an ever increasing spiral, for a day. Then he’ll walk back. And so, after two days, he’ll end up back on stage; spent. We’ll listen to him listen to Glasgow, for 48 hours.

Why: Listening to live radio is unique, you hear sounds that only suggest what’s going on. You never see their cause: you have to imagine a sound’s context. You listen to something that could be totally real, but is still sort of unknowable. So but then: what’s the difference between the Glasgow Tam walks through and the one conjured by what you hear? Which is more real? Live 24hr a day continuous broadcast – tune into www.resonancefm.com between 19:30 on Friday 12 and 19:20 on Sunday 14 5 www.resonancefm.com
