At 10pm tonight US artist, Brandon Locher presents an epic 3-hour longform radio work – ‘Conversations’.
‘Conversations’ is a collection of telephone recordings consisting of one single serial chain of phone calls from each of the 50 United States. On hearing no-one at the other end of the line the initial confused answerer is recorded and then used to playback in a new call to another randomized receiver. That person’s response is then taped and played back for another confused recipient, over and over, State to State… This generative process of calling and recording residential telephone numbers began in Minnesota in 2016. Four years later it is halfway to completion with all 50 States.
