Realscape Productions and DARKFIELD announce DOUBLE, the first broadcast on DARKFIELD RADIO, taking their innovative audio experiences to audiences at home.
DARKFIELD RADIO is a new digital project that distils DARKFIELD’s signature audio experiences into an intense and communal at-home encounter.
As with all DARKFIELD experiences, a strange world is built from 360 degree binaural sound that perplexes the senses, deepening the immersion by casting doubt on what is real and what is imagined.
For the first show, all you need is a mobile device, headphones – and a friend…
Audiences are instructed to sit opposite each other on either side of a kitchen table. Pairs of participants will be replicated in hundreds of rooms across Australia, listening to a simultaneous broadcast over 20 minutes.
There is only one rule: everyone has to be who they say they are.
DOUBLE is a troubling exercise in familiarity that explores the Capgras delusion, a condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions.
As the neuroscientist Anil Seth once said;
Reality is just a hallucination that we can all agree on.
As COVID-19 continues to cause closures impacting the Arts Industry across the globe, introducing DARKFIELD Radio was a logical next step for UK Creators David Rosenberg and Glen Neath (Darkfield).
DOUBLE has made the official selection for the Venice International Film Festival and is the first-ever audio-only experience to make the selection.
Due to popular demand, the production has been extended to September 30.
Tickets are selling fast and can be purchased for just $10 at www.darkfield.com.au/radio.
DARKFIELD RADIO is a new project that delivers immersive audio experiences to audiences at home.
These experiences will be available through Darkfield Radio App – powered by Wiretapper – that users can download once they purchase their access code.
Having raised the hair on the back of the necks of almost 80,000 audience members – Australia accounts for almost half of DARKFIELD’s global audience.
UK-based creative directors and DARKFIELD founders, Glen Neath and David Rosenberg (Darkfield), use a combination of binaural (3D) sound, movement and sensory deprivation to manipulate the audience’s sense of reality in the darkness.
The three shipping container experiences SEANCE, FLIGHT and COMA remain on hiatus until later in 2020.
Local producers Realscape Productions hope to announce new dates soon, as they reintroduce the experiences with social distancing and special measures in place.
