Six Scenes From Dracula

Posted: March 11, 2012 in News

By a stroke of luck (writes Ed Baxter) Tam Dean Burn was in London on Saturday so he, Veryan Weston and I spent a little while making the basic track for the first of Six Scenes From Dracula. I had been talking about my ideas for this project to Joe Quick at Resonance the night before and suddenly it all seemed to fall into place in my imagination. About time too. Six years ago I wrote some outlines for interactives for a proposed Bram Stoker Museum, then tried to get a handle on his famous novel with a view to making a large scale radiophonic work. Only after reading Friedrich Kittler’s Gramophone Film Typewriter did a way into Dracula become apparent and I have now reduced it to six simple scenes, each with a specific and idiosyncratic sonic conceit. We’ll see if the plan progresses any further. Link to audio to follow.
