“Combining elements of both the site-specific and one-on-one theatre, the results are intriguing, fun and, at times, exquisitely touching” Exeunt Magazine (on Everyday Moments series of podcasts)
by Hofesh Shechter
A sound installation for one audience member in a completely dark room.
In 2011, Fuel commissioned a series of podcasts from different artists inspired by their favourite everyday
moment, designed to be listened to at a particular time and in a particular place.
Hofesh Shechter’s podcast, designed to be listened to alone, in a dark space, is an invitation to move without
inhibition – the way you always wished you could when no one is watching.
Original produced part of Everyday Moments podcasts, produced in collaboration with Roundhouse Radio. Originally funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Arts Council England.
We have commissioned a series of podcasts created especially for you to enjoy at a particular time and place.
Imagine there was a soundtrack to those small moments when you find yourself alone, brushing your teeth, in the bath, watching the rain stream down your living room window, or when you're tucked up in bed unable to sleep.
Artists making the podcasts with us were: Bobby Baker, Inua Ellams, Nic Green, John Hegley, Kazuko Hohki, Adrian Howells, Josie Long, Peggy Shaw, Hofesh Shechter, Lemn Sissay, Nick Whitfield and Melanie Wilson.
One podcast a month was released throughout 2011.
The series concludes with Everyday Moments 12: any old time when the shops are open, driving on a flyover, searching for Christmas presents by Bobby Baker.
This is available to listen to and download now - see below. Listening with headphones is highly recommended!
