It is difficult to describe how powerful this experience is, as an evocation of global community; but if you ever have the chance to join Iriguchi's virtual nighttime communion, then take it - for the sake of your soul and you humanity. The Scotsman
A late night antidote to Zoom fatigue...
At the Ends of the Day is a late-night pirate radio station, run beyond the borders via Zoom. Every timezone has its own DJ, broadcasting for the last hour of their day. Each DJ weaves a unique, orchestrated soundscape based on their live outdoor ambient noise. Over this, they layer other end-of-the-day recordings, from countries where the same day has already finished.
Join the newly commissioned Bristol broadcast and share in the final hour of our day together with fellow strangers. The audience members are invited to light just one candle, turn off all electrical lights, and wear headphones. On entry, they are renamed with pseudonyms.
Unlike normal Zoom meetings, anything that identifies you, such as your face or your name, is completely absent. At the Ends of the Day is both communal and reflective; a late night antidote to Zoom fatigue.
