Commissioned by David Dale Gallery, 2023.
Blue Grey Haze is a sonic landscape that begins with a locked groove, serving as a rhythmic foundation that unfolds progressively and cyclically returns. It brings together new compositions, poems and research elements, field recordings, and collected audio materials that undergo deliberate sonic shifts, amplifying the sense of constellations within composition whilst sitting in a state of flux bound by the locked groove.
Exploring Scannell’s concept of “the doubling of place”, the notion that radio listeners occupy two places simultaneously—the physical place where the event unfolds and the subjective place where they engage with the listening experience. Blue Grey Haze embraces a non-linear approach, sitting with time as a fluid and subjective entity.

The commissioned works respond loosely to the theme of broadcast as a site for connection and reflection, and broadcast on Clyde Built Radio, who are based just up the road from the gallery in the Barras Market.
