Sex and Death Radio Phone in [
REAL Player required]
"Sex and Death Radio phone-in"
was developed and broadcast as a radio poem. Some of its humour
lies in the variety of (mostly Scottish voices "phoning
in" from all over the world). Mostly however, sex and death
is about the human comedy, rather than tragedy. It belongs to
a series of structured and improvised dialogues that crop up
from time to time in my work, where recorded voiceas opposed
to writingis the initial creative media.
