The Sand Hills

A commission for Radiophrenia in 2016, re-broadcasted by Borealis Festival, Resonance Fm, Wave Farm.

Inspired both by the short-lived ‘Funkoper’ (or Radio Opera) movement of the 1920’s in Germany and British storytelling from the same period, ‘The Sand Hills’ is a Quasi-Operatic Radiophonic work exploring ideas of magic, control and influence through the power of the recorded (and broadcasted) voice.

Libretto & Original Music by Joe Howe, with help from Anneke Kampmann, Rebecca Wilcox, Darren Rhymes, Aideen Doran, Ray McGahan, Jessica Higgins, Matthew Walkerdine, Louise Wilson, Rob Churm, Bastian Hagedorn & Joshua Hill.
