Manu Luksch & Mukul Patel:
FACELESS – a sonic fiction, emerging from the lived reality of a London under ubiquitous surveillance
22:00-23:00 Friday, 19 April 2019
BAD PUNK, Resonance FM
Based on the soundtrack to Manu Luksch’s 2007 CCTV sci-fi FACELESS narrated by Tilda Swinton, Mukul adjusted his composition for radio broadcast.
FACELESS was entirely generated by UK and EU data protection legislation that gives a ‘data subject’ (the woman in the street) access to copies of any CCTV recordings in which she is present. The soundtrack was specifically composed in 5.1 surround to give depth and motion to the series of medium-shot CCTV still images that make up the greater part of the film.
Composed, recorded, and mixed by Mukul
Tilda Swinton (voice), Rupert Huber (piano), Eva Königer Vokalwerkstatt (choir), Paul Zimmerman (berimbau)
