…an experimental laboratory for the construction of equipment to test theories of communication with the Unknown
We have actually touched the borderland where matter and force seem to merge into one another, the shadowy realm between the Known and the Unknown which for me has always had peculiar temptations.1)
Retro-death-telegraphy is an experimental laboratory / workshop where participants will explore and build a range of devices which have at some point been believed to have the potential to aid in communication with the Unknown.
The laboratory will work through early wireless telegraphy instruments from coherer’s to crystal sets to spasmodic arrangements of rocks and electronics. Participants will experiment and build devices using galena, germanium, copper, electronic circuits, and television sets. These will act as primitive transmitters and receivers. The sounds and images emitted from them will be projected into the room and recorded.
During the evening the participants are invited to join a séance to test the theories of EVP and other supposed supernatural phenomenon to see if anything happens. The séance will form one of the live performances for a small evening concert (full info to come soon).
No previous electronics experience is necessary. Participants keep what they make at the end of the session (except the germanium devices).
Date: Saturday 19th January from 12 midday until approximately 7pm. The séance will take place at 8pm the same evening.
Cost: £35/£30conc. includes all materials
