At 9am today Una Lee presents Faràn
This work of audio storytelling depicts the fictional myth of an island (Faràn) in five monologues, conceived as an ode to the phenomenon of ‘tide’. The monologues are quasi accompanied by five pieces of music each of which takes inspiration from different seascapes created by varying states of the tide. Each composition is led by a specific imagery of sea alluded to in the respective monologue. For the storyline, Una has drawn from diverse folklores and traditions such as Breton, Korean, Torajan and Mexican, representing some of the ways in which these cultures deal with tide and/or death.
