Three live performances embrace the concept of Hauntology at the moment we skip an hour to mark the beginning of British Summertime.  Based on the idea that there are numerous unrealised futures deriving from past points in history, Hauntology makes us nostalgic for a future that never was.

Working from recordings of demolished North East buildings, Ground Rhythms by Forest Swords is performed only once before being destroyed.

Inspired by Kubrick’s The Shining, 1920s ballroom dance, and human memory creation, The Caretaker creates dream-like music that slows down time.

Pye Corner Audio is influenced by nostalgia for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop of the 1970s.
