    Sound work broadcast on Radiophrenia 2017: a temporary art radio station broadcasting in Glasgow and online.
    In 'the silence of nostalghia', all dialogue and non-diegetic sound has been removed from Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1983 film. The silence that survives pulls the background into focus, concentrating the attention of the ear on the sonic details of an emerging landscape, wet with the revenants of footfall, entrance and exit. The textures of optical-sound silence, reminiscent of the atmospheric leaks and spillages of radio transmission, amplify the spectral and oneiric qualities of a soundscape where apparitions of place and time seem to appear, disappear, dissolve and fragment.
