New work ALTERNATING CURRENTS: TRANSMISSIONS FROM THE NORTH SEA to be presented at Newcastle Poetry festival at Sage, Gateshead on Thursday 3rd May.
Commissioned by the Poettrio Experiment (more info: here), a new immersive sound work in response to collaborative poetry translation from leading Dutch and British poets. Imagined as an intercepted cross-border broadcast, Alternating Currents explores the intersection of language, code and music.
