A Home in Distant Stars, 2007
Richard Higlett & Leona Jones
3min 4sec
A Home in Distant Stars a collaboration with the writer Leona Jones,part of an on-going anthology of fictional first pages that could havebeen written over past centuries or in the not too distant future. AHome in Distant Stars is a soulless reading of the first page of a pulpscience fiction novel circa 1970. 

The text looks at the illusionary space created by words as sound, existing in a generic headspace informed by cinema over literature. The story thread style is derived from classic science fiction that deals with the extraordinary aspects of future living as mundane and commonplace. 

The piece is the starting point for a journey only the listener can imagine.

Between Stations, 2007

Mark Cooley
4min 41sec
The public airways are mapped almost entirely to the mandates of consumer demographics, psychographics and other methods of locating, courting and creating compliant consumers and citizens. This sad context provides an aesthetic space where the mash-up and obliteration of those tired fictitious sites of meaning becomes a satisfying experience.  

Between Stations profiles varied U.S. cultures as competing sectors of the consciousness industry represents and attempts to document the decomposition of those seemingly stable identities while moving at high velocity toward utter decay and slippage into forbidden, unclaimed and contested spaces. 

These recordings were made in the southeast of the United States along Interstate 95 from Virginia to North Carolina. The artist’s automobile acted as crude mixing instrument as it was driven recklessly between competing frequencies sliding in and out of coherence and exploring the spaces between stations, colonized electromagnetic frequencies and codified identities.
