The performance attempts to ‘haunt’ the soundscape of the listener with a ‘sonic ghosting’ conjured up by the artist. A ‘ghosting’ that fractures the present soundscape with the sonic memories and auditory phantoms of the spaces now home to Octopus. The work utilises live radio broadcast as tool for this ‘ghosting’, exploiting its nature as sound carried on sound, temporally and spacially unmoored yet capable of occupying multiple spaces and listening planes simultaneously.
