Dead Receiver – Sound recording (2011)
Almost a parody of radio broadcasts through the exploitation of the vague definition of the word ‘synonym’. Synonyms are words that share meanings, but when applied to a statement they tend to render it, in its entirety, meaningless.
The language heard from the imitation-radio-segments is correct by the definition of a synonym, however the speech is undecipherable and, at times, completely illogical. Examples include a news report about a sandwich-eating dog, a man singing about rainbows and a politician avoiding an issue with a prepared, self-glorifying, motivational speech.
The piece was originally written by myself (Dary Gregg) and then edited by way of substituting nearly every single word with a synonym. The scripts were then read, recorded and edited to create a pseudo-radio-broadcast.
