This program of electro-acoustic work takes different approaches to the singing body and intimate relationships. James Rushford's Fabric of wind is a sort of covert, platonic love story, revealed through gaseous, stilted percussion, stumbling vocal utterances and found sound playback. Lawrence Dunn's While are we both sets intimate poetry by Caitlin Doherty to fashion a subtly tuned fusion of voice with electronic. Jessica Aszodi's Repeat Audient peers inside the bodies of singer and listeners, bidding them join together – turning the inside out.
