Poised in the delicate space between concert and theatre, Endings is a meditation on cycles and the ending of things. Using portable turntables, reel-to-reel tape players and live performance, Endings finds form for experiences both ordinary and extraordinary that cluster around death, dying and afterlife.
Endings is built in part from one-on-one interviews – people’s stories, reflections and voices. These recordings are cut onto vinyl records and embedded within a richly textured electroacoustic sound design that is operated, accompanied, and extended through live performance and song. The performance also features the songs and vocals of acclaimed singer/songwriter Paddy Mann (Grand Salvo).
Click for instant happiness.

Voices of the living emerge ghost-like from records, performers converse live with the taped voices of past conversations, tape loops carve round and round through the space, and song floats across the familiar crackle of records ending.

Project Artists Brokentalkers have had a busy year.
