Radio Frankenstein [installation version]

This piece takes as its source material a computer database of all the text from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Installation with electronic sculpture & microwatt radio broadcast of custom software-generated audio


Custom software creates a collage of the book, re-combining and re-assembling text fragments into ever-changing patterns. The resulting collage is read aloud by a synthetic voice, broadcast over a large indoor area via a pirate radio transmitter. Visitors carry small, customised transistor radios to hear the work over one floor of the venue.
