Italian sound artist Gilda Manfring has constructed a sonic archive from the future. Beginning with the sounds of clocks and trains, the listener moves through time, landing inside a spoken word archive of semi-familiar sound effects: a fractured, fragmentary listing of icons from the future via some of the sonic staples of yesteryear, a bit worse for the wear from having temporally shifted back to the present – even the translation circuits seem a bit frazzled. When the recitation ends, the journey continues: the dial is turned, the glitchy noise of musical static suggesting the spaces between broadcasts, waiting for the next signal to come in.
