Night falls and metropolis mirrors the cosmos. Destinies connected by light and dust send signals, alone, to one another. The city glitters: On Air.
In August 2021, artists Danielle Swindells and Brit Seaton asked the people of Greater Manchester what they dream of. Over five weeks, answers were left on the automated voicemail system of the fictional radio station Dream FM.
The sound work What do you dream of? brings together the hotline musings of the metropolitan borough, in a special broadcast inspired by the fading format of night-time radio talk shows. The piece features an original score by Space Afrika and was made possible with support from Manchester Independents.
