Curated by Frenchbloke, The Dark Outside transmits sounds on FM that have never been broadcast before, in a remote location where nobody may be listening.
The work Do Not Listen (6'45") is a collaboration between Alan Dunn and Valérie Vivancos. They write:
"Sincere and precise messages that have been left on the wrong telephone answering services become lost in a void of uncertainty and paranoia. Some are saved or relayed but we suspect the majority of them rest there, guiltily. Dunn & Vivancos create a slow pulsing sequence of three such lost communiqués, permeated with ringing and middle class politeness."
Alan Dunn studied at Glasgow School of Art and The Art Institute of Chicago and recently completed a PhD on sound art at Leeds Beckett University. Valérie Vivancos lives and works in Paris, studied at the Chelsea School of Art, the SFAI and the Sorbonne University. She composes sound works as Ocean Viva Silver and as part of the OttoannA duo.
