the darkened auditorium, we hear the sound of an audience settling
down for the start of a play; an occasional cough, low level chat
and high expectation. An image is projected onto the cyclorama.
Each frame has been treated so the surface appears to be crumbling,
revealing layers of images underneath. Within this projection,
stage curtains open, the invisible audience applauds and the play
actors gesticulate and react to each other, but we do not hear
their speech. Instead, from the space around and above, we hear
the ghost audience's reaction to the play: gasps of surprise,
booing, shouts of 'Bravo!', rapturous applause.
surround sound track is mapped to specific locations, so moving
around the theatre we can locate the exact places where individual
ghosts appear to be sitting.
Running time 9 minutes.
