about

Concrete Mirror is a thirty-minute acousmatic work that responds to the mechanisms of war. Designed as a radiophonic review of Peter Kennard’s recent retrospective at the Imperial War Museum and conceived in three chapters, the piece investigates the military’s role in the development of technology.

The first chapter, Concrete Mirror, takes its inspiration from the acoustic mirrors built on the Kent coast during the interwar period, which were used to listen out for approaching enemy aircraft; the second chapter, Klopfgeist Minuet, re-imagines drone warfare as a mechanised dance in the sky; while the closing chapter reworks Kennard’s 2015 installation, The Noose Of Noughts, which is a sober relay of statistics that highlight the depth of governmental and corporate involvement in global conflict.

The first chapter was originally broadcast by Resonance FM in the spring and the complete piece was released by The Imaginary Archive via Bandcamp in May 2016 (Cat. #IA004).
